Literature References

In the presence of KOH in methanol, pinacol coupling of araldehydes and acetophenones gives diols in good yield. Diaryl ketones are reduced to alcohols: J. Chem. Soc., Perkin 1, 2213 (1996).

With NiCl2, forms a versatile reducing agent for, e.g. ɑß-unsaturated carbonyl compounds to saturated derivatives and nitro compounds to amines. Tetrahedron, 47, 8587 (1991).
