Other important reductive applications include reduction of α,ß-unsaturated carbonyl compounds to the corresponding unsaturated alcohols, conversion of pyridinium ions to tetrahydropyridine derivatives, and dehalogenation reactions. The solid supported reagent greatly simplifies the reaction work-up protocol. Specifically, compared with the small molecule sodium cyanoborohydride, it is reported that toxic cyanide is not released on reaction workup and therefore does not contaminate the product or pose a danger towards the user.
