Physical Properties
Physical Form
Liquid - Solution in Heptanes
Colorless to light yellow liquid
Hydrocarbons and dichloromethane
Efficiently reduces asymmetric ketones to chiral secondary alcohols.
Analysis Method
Chloride titration for concentration.
Storage & Shipping
Shelf Life
Six years in unopened, original packaging. Based upon stability testing.
Storage / Stability
DPC is susceptible to hydrolysis, readily reacting with atmospheric moisture or water in solvents resulting in evolution of hydrogen chloride. Oxidation by exposure to air gives borate compounds of pinanol which are not capable of reducing ketones.
