Reducing agents

  1. Sep 24, 2016 #1
    I always get confused between the reducing agents that where would it attack when many functional group are present in compound.
    Please tell me about some of the common R.A like
    Ni/Pt/Pd + H2
    Sodium borohydride
    Lithium aluminium hydride

    Also please tell which functional groups the aabove R.A cannot reduce
