B-B Bond Alkynes contain carbon-carbon triple bonds and represent a diverse class of organic compounds. In principle, valence rules suggest that the boron analog of an alkyne, with a B-B triple bond, ought to be accessible by appending a two-electron donor to each B atom. Braunschweig et al. (p. 1420; see the Perspective by Frenking and Holzmann) now present the synthesis, isolation, and crystallization of a solid, triple-bonded diboryne, with N-heterocyclic carbenes as the terminal… Expand
