For esters and nitriles, LiAlH4 is modified into the organometallic reagent diisobutyl aluminum hydride which can be represented as DIBAL or DIBAL-H or DIBAH or DIBALH. 5) Nitriles to aldehydes or primary amines: The nitriles are either reduced to aldehydes or primary amines depending on the amount of DIBAL-H consumed. formally request permission using Copyright Clearance Center.

Aldehydes, ketones, epoxides, and several other functional groups can also be reduced by lithium borohydride. It will reduce aldehydes, ketones, esters, carboxylic acid chlorides, carboxylic acids and even carboxylate salts to alcohols. Missed the LibreFest? of the whole article in a thesis or dissertation.

Amides and nitriles are reduced to amines. Aldehydes are important intermediates in organic synthesis due to their reactivity.
Herein we report the reduction of aromatic nitriles into aldehydes with calcium hypophosphite in the presence of base and nickel(II) complex in a water/ethanol mixture.This catalytic system reduced efficiently a series of aromatic nitriles bearing different functional groups such as –Cl, –CF 3, –Br, –CH 3, –OCH 3, –COOCH 2 CH 3, –OH and –CHO. Reduction by mild reducing agents converts acyl chlorides, esters, and nitrites into aldehydes. The reduction of esters, acid chlorides, and nitriles require reducing agents that are derivatives of lithium aluminum hydride (LiAlH4). The carbon-nitrogen triple bond in a nitrile can also be reduced by reaction with hydrogen gas in the presence of a variety of metal catalysts. The nitrile is then reduced by the transfer of a hydride ion to the carbon of the carbon-nitrile triple bond, producing an imine. it in a third party non-RSC publication you must

• Lithium borohydride is commonly used for the selective reduction of esters and lactones to the corresponding alcohols in the presence of carboxylic acids, tertiary amides, and nitriles. Carboxylic acids can be converted to acid chlorides using thionyl chloride which can then be reduced to aldehydes using LiAlH(O-t-Bu)3. article provided that the correct acknowledgement is given with the reproduced material.
