Lithium aluminum hydride and diisobutylaluminum hydride reduce carboxylic acid chlorides to the alcohols. The reagent of choice for the reduction of acid chlorides to aldehydes 4 is lithium tri-tert-butoxyaluminum hydride [LiAlH(Ot-Bu)3] (Scheme 3).[‌11‌] This reagent is commercially available or can be generated in situ from lithium aluminum hydride and 3 equivalents of tert-butyl alcohol. The reductions are performed in tetrahydrofuran or diglyme at 78°C. Under these conditions, virtually all other reducible functional groups, except aldehydes, are inert. Thus, halogens,[‌12‌‌14‌] esters (including methyl esters and acetyl protecting groups,[‌15‌,‌16‌] lactones,[‌17‌] nitriles,[‌18‌,‌19‌] and oximes[‌20‌] are not reduced under the conditions. The tricyclic acid 5 is reduced through its acid chloride 6 to the aldehyde 7 in 70% yield over two steps in the presence of its lactone and ester functionalities (Scheme 4).[‌17‌]
