Novel approach to the high-yield synthesis of tertiary alcohols using organoboranes

Abstract

Trialkylmethanols (R12R2COH) are produced in essentially quantitative yields by treatment of trialkylboranes successively in the same vessel with 1-lithio-1,1-bis(phenylthio)alkene (–30 to 20°), HgCl2(–78 to 0°) and alkaline hydrogen peroxide (20°).
