Sodium borohydride is a well known reducing agent. In methanol at room temperature formyl and keto groups are readily reduced to alcohol groups, while ester and carboxyl groups, carbon-carbon and carbon-nitrogen double bonds are only reduced with difficulty (2, 17). Of the groups present in chlorophyll b the C3 formyl and the C9 keto groups should be amenable to reduction, while the C2 vinyl and the C7 and Ci0 ester groups should be unaffected. Similar considerations apply to chlorophyll a and… Expand
