Cobalt-catalysed Markovnikov selective hydroboration of vinylarenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

A bipyridiyl–oxazoline cobalt catalyst tBuBPOCoCl2 has been developed for the Markovnikov selective hydroboration of alkenes using pinacolborane and NaOtBu as the in situ activator with up to >98 : 2 branched : linear selectivity (24 examples, 45–92% isolated yield).
