Abstract

In the performance of the Birch reduction, a number of experimental variants have been proposed which differ from one another by the ratio and order of addition of the reagents — the alkali metal, the ammonia, and the alcohol — and also by the presence or absence of supplementary solvents. Since the reaction is carried out in liquid ammonia, its temperature range is determined by the boiling and solidification points of ammonia (from -34°C to -80°C).
