Hello everyone. I had been given a question on reducing an amide group into an amine group using any reagent I saw fit as homework. I had used LiAlH4, which provides H- and does an acid base reaction with nh-h+, and then uses its pi electrons to kick out carbonyl pi bond back to the oxygen, followed by addition of more H- to form R-ch2-nh followed by hydrolysis which gives r-ch2-nh2. so how correct is this?
