Selective reducing agent. Reactivity in carbonyl reductions is increased in acidic media: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 92, 4203 (1970); J. Chem. Soc., Perkin 2, 1948 (1973). For a review of amine boranes as selective reducing and hydroborating agents, see: Org. Prep. Proced. Int., 16, 335 (1984)./n
Treatment with n-BuLi generates the lithium aminoborohydride, a powerful reducing agent similar to LiAH4 in its reducing power, but air-stable and non-pyrophoric: J. Org. Chem., 59, 6378 (1994)./n
