Sodium Borohydride Application Notes Sodium borohydride is an excellent reducing agent. It is used to generate diborane, as a foaming agent, as a scavenger for traces of aldehyde, ketones and peroxides in organic chemicals. Nanocrystalline superlattices in gold colloid solution have been prepared by ligand-induction using AuCl3 reduced with sodium borohydride. Nucleophilic addition of hydride ion from sodium borohydride is an inexpensive alternative method for the Baylis-Hillman reaction to form [E]-a-methylcinnamic acids.
