Reduction of Benzil Using Sodium Borohydride?

Answer

The reduction of benzil using sodium borohydride is a common experiment in a high school or first year college chemistry class. To reduce benzil using sodium borohydride, the first step is to take 10 ml of absolute ethanol and dissolve 1g Benzil into it. Heat the solution on a low Bunsen burner, and stir it around until it is completely dissolved and there is no trace of the benzil in the bottom of the vessel. Allow the solution to completely cool, then add sodium borohydride and stir until it is completely mixed.
