- It was shown that the most effective and stereospecific hydride reductant for (R)-4-menthen-3-one to (1R,3R)-menthen-3-ol was i-Bu₂AlH whereas the complex BH₃·THF, which exhibited the same properties relative to the substrate carbonyl, was a regiospecific but relatively non-stereospecific hydroborating reagent of its double bond.
