A facile synthesis of cyclic aminodiborane (NH2B2H5, ADB) from ammonia borane (NH3·BH3, AB) and THF·BH3 has made it possible to determine its important characteristics. Ammonia diborane (NH3BH2(μ-H)BH3, AaDB) and aminoborane (NH2BH2, AoB) were identified as key intermediates in the formation of ADB. Elimination of molecular hydrogen occurred from an ion(More)
We report the hydroboration of CO2 with catecholborane catalyzed by a series of bis(phosphinite) pincer ligated nickel thiolate complexes. Turnover frequencies (TOFs) up to 2400 h-1 were achieved at room temperature under an atmospheric pressure of CO2. This represents the highest TOF value known to date for the reduction of CO2 to the methoxide level under(More)
