Study on the production of formaldehyde-14C by direct reduction of14CO2 with LiAlH4

Abstract

A vial technique was developed for the synthesis of formaldehyde-14C from14CO2 in an ether solution of lithium aluminium hydride. The yield of formaldehyde (40–50%) was achieved by optimization of the reaction parameters.
