Sodium borohydride is a water soluble reductant.Mainly used in drug, pulp bleaching, recovery of noble metals and preventation of the occurrence of public nuisances caused by heavy metals.
-- Sodium borohydride is reductant of carbonyl compound (aldehyde, ketone, acid, acid amide, acid anhydride, acid halogen,ester,enol ester, imide , lactone), carbonitriding chemicals (azide, diazo salts, hydrazone, imine, nitrile, oxime, nitro compound), peroxide and hydroperoxide;
-- Sodium borohydride also can be used to remove color, smell of organic chemicals;
-- Sodium borohydride can be used to control pollution and recycle noble metals;
-- Sodium borohydride can be used in the production of drug and fine chemicals;
-- Sodium borohydride can be used in the production and recovery of catalyst,etc.
