Selective reducing agent for aldehydes, ketones, oximes, enamines. Reductive animation of ketones, aldehydes. Reductive alkylation of amines, hydrazines Sodium cyanoborohydride is used as a reagent involved in the reductive amination of aldehydes, ketones, oximes and enamines. It is also used in the reductive alkylation of amines and hydrazines. It acts as a catalyst in the preparation of phenolate-bridged dilanthanum(III) complex. In addition, it is used in the conversion of imines to amines. It plays an important role in the reductive deoxygenation of ketones.


Moisture sensitive. Incompatible with strong acids, water and strong oxidizing agents.
