Abstract

Reactions of readily accessible magnesium-centered pinacolatoboryl nucleophiles with [(Ph 2B) 2O] result in B−O bond activation of the diphenylborinic anhydride. Although [pinBBPh 2] is apparently generated when the nucleophilic boron unit is derived in situ from a magnesium diboranate, it cannot be isolated owing to its onward derivatization by a further {Bpin} equivalent. A reaction with a terminal magnesium boryl species similarly provides a boryloxide byproduct. In this case, however, the unsymmetrical B(sp 2)−B(sp 3) diborane may be intercepted as its DMAP adduct.
