# Graphical representation of reductive powers of NaBH4 and LiAlH4?

I don't know whether this is a valid question, I will delete it if it is inappropriate.

I am looking for a graphical representation of the reductive powers of $\ce{NaBH4}$ and $\ce{LiAlH4}$. Such as this

but then including acyl chlorides and the other important organic functional groups.

This is perhaps more than what you are asking for, but the textbook by Clayden et al.1 has a good overview of reducing agents and their substrates:

### Reference

(1) Clayden, J.; Greeves, N.; Warren, S. Organic Chemistry, 2nd ed.; Oxford UP: Oxford, U.K., 2012; p 314.

$\ce{LiAlH4}$ reduces all carbonyl compounds to their respective reduced forms,mostly alcohols. Now since you insisted on a graphic, This was what I could make up within the short period.
