Molecular formula :
nature : carbonyl compounds using isopropanol aluminum (or aluminum ethanol) in isopropanol for reduction, generation and carbonyl compounds corresponding alcohols. Usually the reaction of benzene or toluene, formaldehyde has been reinstated as a alcohols, ketones, are reduced to two alcohol, generally yield good, up 80% to 95%. The reaction is reversible, the reaction products and can be one of the acetone steamed, and the balance shifted toward the right side of raising yield. Aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes of the reaction can occur, formaldehyde easier than one reaction, other elements may be reinstated groups such as nitro, esters, and the double bond, such as halogen in the reaction conditions will not be reinstated, the reaction in organic synthesis has been playing an important role, especially in the boron-hydrogen Sodium and other highly selective agent was discovered that some of α, β - unsaturated carbonyl compounds selective reduction mainly depend on the reaction to completion.
