Abstract

We have already reported that electrochemical oxidation of the solution containing sodium borohydride led to the generation of diboranes (BH3). Application of this method to reductive reactions of aliphatic carboxylic acids was successful to form the corresponding primary aliphatic alcohols selectively.1) These reactions was quite familiar to us as one of the typical transformations by use of diboranes.
