Organic Chemistry --> Carbonyl Additions --> VCL 10.4 Reduction of Carbonyls (benzaldehyde reduction with sodium borohydride recommended)
This reaction appears to work with water as the original solvent. It even forms two layers when aqueous HCl is added for the workup!
In the proton NMR of benzyl alcohol, the apparent signal intensities (height) do not match the table on the bottom. Why is signal height given in the table (which should be apparent from the spectrum) and not integration (useful information for NMR interpretation)?
The MS spectrum of benzyl alcohol does not have the molecular mass peak (108 g/mol) even though the SDBS MS spectrum has prominent signals at 108 & 107 m/z.
