Facile metal free regioselective transfer hydrogenation of polarized olefins with ammonia borane

Author affiliations

Abstract

Transfer hydrogenation of polarized olefins bearing strongly electron-withdrawing groups on one side of the double bond was achieved with ammonia borane under mild conditions without using a catalyst. Mechanistic studies proved the character of the direct H transfers proceeding stepwise with a unique hydroboration intermediate and hydride before proton transfer.
