Repeat Problem 10-24 using LiAlH4 (followed by hydrolysis) as the reagent
Predict the products you would expect from the reaction of NaBH4 with the following compounds. You may assume that these reactions take place in methanol as the solvent.
The product obtained when reactants given reacts with LiA1H4 is given below-
a ) CH3 - (CH2)8 -CH2OH LiA1H4 reduces aldehyde to alcohol
b) CH3 - CH2 -CH2OH LiA1H4 reduces ester to alcohol
c) Ph-CH2OH LiA1H4 reduces acid to primary alcohol.
LiA1H4 reduces ketene to secondary alcohol
