New outcomes of Lewis base addition to diboranes(4): electronic effects override strong steric disincentives

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two surprising new outcomes of the reaction of Lewis bases with dihalodiboranes(4) are presented, including sp2–sp3 diboranes in which the Lewis base unit is bound to a highly sterically congested boron atom, and a rearranged double base adduct. The results provide a fuller understanding of the reactivity of diboranes, a poorly-understood class of molecule of critical importance to synthetic organic chemistry.
