The objectives of this review are mainly reactions of alkalides with various classes of organic compounds. Mechanisms of these processes are discussed taking into account our present stage of knowledge. A new method for the preparation of crystalline nanomaterials via homogeneous reduction of transition and post-transition metal salts is also presented.
Keywords: Alkalides, potassium anions, two-electron-transfer, reduction, vinyl compounds, ethers, esters
