This white solid, usually encountered as a powder, is a versatile reducing agent that finds wide application in chemistry, both in the laboratory and on a technical scale. Large amounts are used for bleaching wood pulp. The compound is insoluble in ether, and soluble in glyme solvents, methanol and water, but reacts with the latter two in the absence of base.[2]

The compound was discovered in the 1940s by H. I. Schlesinger, who led a team that developed metal borohydrides for wartime applications.[3] Their work was classified and published only in 1953.

Physical properties

Sodium borohydride is an odorless white to gray-white microcrystalline powder which often forms lumps. It is soluble in water, without decomposition, however it reacts vigorously with acid solutions. The salt can be recrystallized by dissolving in warm (50 °C) diglyme followed by cooling the solution.
