Polyaminoborane main chain scission using N-heterocyclic carbenes; formation of donor-stabilised monomeric aminoboranes

Abstract

The reaction of N-heterocyclic carbenes with polyaminoboranes [MeNH–BH2] n or [NH2–BH2] n at 20 °C led to depolymerisation and the formation of labile, monomeric aminoborane–NHC adducts, RNH–BH2–NHC (R = Me or H); a similar NHC adduct of Ph2N[double bond, length as m-dash]BCl2 was characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction.
