STAB

(Sodium Triacetoxyborohydride)


Other Names:

Sodium triacetoxyhydroborate






General Information:


Structure:



CAS Number: 56553-60-7

Molecular Weight: 211.96 g/mol

Appearance: White powder


Sodium triacetoxyborohydride (STAB) is a mild reducing agent that is commonly used in reductive aminations. STAB has the advantage over sodium cyanoborohydride (NaBH3CN) of not producing toxic side-pdts. One disadvantage of STAB is that it is H2O sensitive, not compatible with MeOH, and reacts slowly with EtOH and isopropanol. For these reasons STAB is typically used with aprotic solvents such as DCE, DCM, THF, dioxane, or toluene.




Common Uses:


Reagent for reductive aminations





Reagent for the reduction of enamines





Safety:


Care should be taken when forming sodium triacetoxyborohydride (STAB) in situ from NaBH4 and AcOH because H2 gas forms. Work should be done under an inert atmosphere.
