2-Methylpyridine borane complex solution (2-Picoline borane complex) was used as reducing agent for the labeling of oligosaccharides by reductive amination. It may be used in the following studies:• Synthesis of alkoxyamine derivatives, via reduction of oxime ethers.• Reductive amination reactions of C1-C10 aldehyde 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazones.• Synthesis of various trifluoromethylated amino compounds.• An alternative reagent for reductive aminations.

2-Methylpyridine borane complex is a nontoxic alternate to the reducing agent sodium cyanoborohydride.
