Information  at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Sodium borohydride, also known as sodium tetrahydridoborate and sodium tetrahydroborate, is an inorganic compound with the formula NaBH4
  • Sodium BoroHydride is usually a powder, is a reducing agent that finds wide application in chemistry, both in the laboratory and on a technical scale.
  • Sodium borohydride, NaBH4, is classified as a flammable solid, is available either as a white powder or as a 12% solution in caustic soda
  • Sodium BoroHydride is prepared from methyl borate and sodium hydride at elevated temperatures.
  • Commercial sodium borohydride is 97+% pure
  • Sodium borohydride is hygroscopic and when it absorbs water rapidly from moist air, it decomposes slowly to form sodium metaborate and hydrogen. Hydrogen can be generated in a rapid and controlled manner by adding an acidic compound or an appropriate metal such as nickel, cobalt, ruthenium or platinum.
  • Sodium borohydride is an excellent reducing agent. It is used to generate diborane, as a foaming agent, as a scavenger for traces of aldehyde, ketones and peroxides in organic chemicals. Nanocrystalline super lattices in gold colloid solution have been prepared by ligand-induction using AuCl3 reduced with sodium borohydride.
  • Sodium borohydride (NaBH4) is the most commonly available borohydride, synthesized by reacting methylborate with sodium hydride in mineral oil. It is employed as a precursor for producing other metal borohydrides.
  • Sodium BoroHydride can be used to store and generate hydrogen gas via a hydrolysis reaction.
  • The global sodium borohydride market is dominated by very few companies
  • The end users of sodium borohydride are industries such as pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, textiles, metal recovery, organic chemical purification, and others such as electronic products and agrochemicals
  • The paper and pulp industry is
    expected to contribute significantly to the increasing uptake of sodium borohydride in the coming years
  • The paper and pulp industry in North America is expected to increase the region's consumption of sodium borohydride in the next years
  • According to the research reports, the global sodium borohydride market is expected to reach a valuation of US$2.1 bn by the end of 2024 as compared to US$1.3 bn in 2015. Between the forecast years of 2016 and 2024, the global market is estimated to rise up at a CAGR of 5.3%
