Bis-boranes in the frustrated Lewis pair activation of carbon dioxide

Abstract

Using a frustrated Lewis pair approach, the 1,1-bis-(C6F5)2BOB(C6F5)2 is shown to bind CO2 in a monodentate fashion, while the bis-boranes (X2B)2C[double bond, length as m-dash]CMe2 (X = Cl, C6F5) give bidentate chelation of CO2 affording unique heterocycles.
