Hi everyone,

I have a researcher who is proposing to make a solution of 2-propanol and sodium hydride.

From what I’m reading the NaH will not react with the propanol, but that this needs to be done slowly and under nitrogen.


Any suggestions on what this setup would like and how to add the NaH?

Thanks in advance.
