Olefin-borane "van der Waals complexes": intermediates in frustrated Lewis pair addition reactions.

Abstract

The nature of the borane-olefin interactions that take place prior to frustrated Lewis pair addition reactions has been probed employing a Lewis acidic borane tethered to a vinyl group through an alkyl chain. (1)H{(19)F} HOESY spectral data obtained at -50 °C demonstrated the spatial proximity of the boryl and vinyl groups and computational data support the… (More)
