Mechanistic studies on the metal-free activation of dihydrogen by antiaromatic pentarylboroles.


The perfluoro- and perprotiopentaphenylboroles 1 and 2 react with dihydrogen to effect H-H bond cleavage and formation of boracyclopentene products. The mechanism of this reaction has been studied experimentally through evaluation of the kinetic properties of the slower reaction between 2 and H(2). The reaction is first-order in both [borole] and [H(2… (More)
