Reactions of a magnesium-based pinacolatoboryl nucleophile with the electrophilic organoboranes, 9-BBN and Ph3B, provide facile B-B' single bond formation. Although the Ph3B derivative is thermally stable, when heated, the unsymmetrical diborane(5) anion derived from 9-BBN is found to isomerize to two regioisomeric species via a proposed mechanism involving dehydroboration of the borabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane and syn-diboration of the resultant alkenyl carbocycle.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'Magnesium Boryl Reactivity with 9-BBN and Ph3B: Rational B-B' Bond Formation and Diborane Isomerization'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
