Soluble in water (27 g/L at 20°C) and methanol.


Borane-tert-butylamine complex is used in stereoselective reduction of a steroidal ketone and for a review of amine boranes as selective reducing and hydroborating agents. It is also used as strong co-reducing agent in the syntheses of copper (I) oxide nanoparticles, diphosphine-protected gold nanocluster and 4-acetoxycinnamyl alcohols.


Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with oxidizing agents and acids.
