  • Nitro aromatics can be selectively reduced in the presence of aldehyde, nitrile or halogen substituents, using ethanol - ethyl acetate as solvent: Tetrahedron Lett., 25, 839 (1984). ɑ?-Unsaturated nitro compounds are reduced to the oximes of saturated ketones: Synth. Commun., 18, 693 (1988).
  • For use in the preparation of aldehydes by the Stephen reduction of aromatic nitriles, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 3, 626 (1955), and by the Sonn-Mueller reduction of imidoyl chlorides: Org. Synth. Coll., 3, 818 (1955).
  • Catalyzes the reaction of ethyl diazoacetate with aldehydes to give ?-keto esters: J. Org. Chem., 54, 3258 (1989). For carbon-carbon double-bond formation between ɑ-halo ketones and aldehydes, mediated by SnCl2/Na2SO3, see: Synth. Commun., 23, 271 (1993).
