Lithium tri-tert-butoxyaluminum hydride, nominally 1M in THF, packaged under Argon in resealable ChemSeal™ bottles


Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Flash Point
Storage & Sensitivity
Moisture Sensitive. Ambient temperatures.
It is soluble in organic solvents at low temperatures.


Lithium tri-tert-butoxyaluminum hydride is less reactive than lithium aluminum hydride (LAH) and is very useful in selective reductions of acyl halides, aldehydes, ketones, and esters. It is an important raw material and intermediate used in organic synthesis, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and dye stuff. LAH, is a reducing agent commonly employed in modern organic synthesis.


It is very susceptible to oxidation and must be maintained under an inert atmosphere. It is stable at ambient temperature. Store in a closed system under argon or nitrogen. Incompatible with alcohols. Air & Moisture Sensitive

Obtain special instructions before use. Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. - No smoking. Keep away from any possible contact with water, because of violent reaction and possible flash fire. Handle under inert gas. Protect from moisture. Keep container tightly closed. Keep cool. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. Use explosion-proof electrical/ventilating/lighting/ equipment. Use only non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Wash face, hands and any exposed skin thoroughly after handling Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Use personal protective equipment as required. IF SWALLOWED: Call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician if you feel unwell. IF ON SKIN (or hair): Remove/Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/shower. IF INHALED: Remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. IF exposed or concerned: Get medical advice/attention. Immediately call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician. Rinse mouth.
