Hydrogen










General Information:


Structure:



CAS Number: 1333-74-0

Molecular Weight: 2.02 g/mol

Appearance: Colorless gas




Common Uses:


Reagent for the reduction of nitro groups to amines



Procedure excerpt:

. . . the SM (15.0 g, 67.5 mmol) in MeOH (400 mL). The flask was repeatedly evacuated and flushed with H2 gas. The resulting mixture was allowed to warm to RT and . . .

Reagent for the reduction of nitriles to amines



Procedure excerpt:

A mixture of the SM (45 mg, 0.12 mmol) and Pd/C (5 mg) in 4:1 THF/NH4OH (2.5 mL) was stirred under H2 at RT for 1 h. The reaction mixture was filtered, concentrated, and . . .
