dc.description.abstract A simple experiment to demonstrate nucleophilic addition to a carbonyl. Sodium borohydride-mediated reduction of fluorenone is a fast and high-yielding reaction that is suitable for beginning students. Students isolate their fluorenol product by recrystallization and characterize it by NMR and IR. en_US
