Lithium Aluminium Hydride (LiAlH4) is one of the most potent reducing agents. It is routinely used in organic synthesis for the reduction of unsaturated to saturated bonds. For example, many amines can be prepared from imines by reaction with LiAlH4. Since the reagent needs to be used in larger (sto...

The future perspective of chemistry is ‘electrifying’: With increasing availability of cheap electrical energy from renewables it will soon become possible to drive many chemical processes by electrical power. In this way, chemical products and fuels can be produced via sustainable routes, replacing...

Efficient storage of solar energy is the key challenge in our transition to a renewable energy system. Besides the conventional solutions, such as solar cells and batteries, innovative chemical concepts for energy storage may open new fields of application. For example, intramolecular reactions hold...
