The hydride affinities of 21 typical aldehydes and ketones in acetonitrile were determined by using an experimental method, which is valuable for chemists choosing suitable reducing agents to reduce them. The focus of this paper is to introduce a very facile experimental method, which can be used to determine the hydride affinities of various carbonyl compounds in solution.
