Lithium aluminum hydride can be used as a reactant or a reagent for a variety of experiments. For instance, it has been used for the preparation of thermoplastic polyester polyamides from oleic acid, Lithium-polymer batteries, hydrodefluorination of gem-difluoromethylene derivatives, asymmetric aldol reactions and synthesis of Li-Al-N-H composites with hydrogen absorption/ desorption properties. Additionally, Lithium aluminum hydride is a powerful reducing agent for many different reduction reactions such as that of ketones to alcohols.
