reduction agents
« on: December 24, 2007, 08:29:56 PM »
 I want to reduce C=N to CNNH but I don't have enough money to buy reductive reagents (e.g. LiALH4, NaBH4, NaCNBH3,...). Is there any way to prepare them in laboratory. Or is there any way to reduce with cheaper reagents.

Can you be more specific what your reagent and desired product is? I.e.  starting with H2CN, HCN etc...

my topic is the transition -C=O -> -C-NH2  -> -CONH-R. I try to find out the best procedure with cheap reagents, especially reductive reagents. The keyword may be reduction amination. Can I prepare LiAlH4 or NaBH4 in my lab?Maybe I have to search on internet first?

Those reagents are already rather cheap.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
