Applications
Sodium bis(2-methoxyethoxy)aluminum hydride acts as a reducing agent in organic synthesis. It is used to prepare azoxyarenes, azoarenes and hydroazoarenes from nitroarenes. It plays an important role for the conversion of aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, acyl halides and anhydrides to primary alcohols. It is also employed in hydroaluminate alkenes and alkynes. It is utilized in the reduction of lactones and epoxides into diols. Further, it serves as a methylation reagent for aryl-activated compounds. In addition to this, it is involved in the reduction of amides, nitriles and amines to the corresponding amines.

Solubility
Miscible with aromatic hydrocarbons, ether, tetrahydrofuran, dimethyl ether and dimethylformamide. Immiscible with aliphatic hydrocarbons.

Notes
Air and moisture sensitive. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with water, oxidizing agents and combustible material.
