Repeat Problem 10-24 using LiA1H4 (followed by hydrolysis) as the reagent.
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
LiA1H4 reduces ketene to secondary alcohol; aldehyde to primary alcohol and ester to alcohol.
LiA1H4 reduces aldehyde to primary alcohol and ester gives alcohol.
