Lithium aluminum deuteride(Cat No.:R015614), is a powerful reducing agent and a deuterated derivative of lithium aluminum hydride (LiAlH4). It is used in organic synthesis and chemical reactions to reduce various functional groups, such as carbonyl compounds, into their corresponding alcohols. The presence of deuterium (heavy hydrogen isotope) in this compound can be advantageous in specific applications where tracking the fate of hydrogen atoms is essential. Lithium aluminum deuteride is highly reactive and must be handled with care due to its potential to ignite upon contact with moisture or air. It plays a vital role in the field of synthetic chemistry.
