SiliaBond Cyanoborohydride as a Reducing Agent

> back to Application Notes

SiliaBond Cyanoborohydride (CBH) is the silica-bound equivalent of sodium cyanoborohydride. This reagent is known to be very effective for reductive amination and for the reduction of imines. It also allows the reduction of α, β - unsaturated carbonyls to their corresponding unsaturated alcohols. However, cyanide contamination resulting from the use of this reagent is of concern due to its high toxicity, and this may have a deterrent effect on its use. Fortunately, this problem could be minimized using a silica-supported version since the toxic cyanide residue remains on the solid support.

    SiliaBond Cyanoborohydride (CBH) (R66730B)

    SiliaBond® Cyanoborohydride (Si-CBH) is the silica bound equivalent of sodium cyanoborohydride. Bound cyanoborohydride is very useful in reductive amination and in the reduction of imines and aldehydes. This problem is minimized with the use of silica bound materials since the toxic cyanide residue remains on the silica.
