  • The nonclassical ruthenium hydride pincer complex [Ru(PNP)(H)(2)(H(2))] 1 (PNP = 1,3-bis(di-tert-butyl-phosphinomethyl)pyridine) catalyzes the anti-Markovnikov addition of pinacolborane to terminal alkynes yielding Z-vinylboronates at mild conditions. The complex [Ru(PNP)(H)(2)(HBpin)] 2 (HBpin = pinacolborane), which was identified at the end of the reaction and prepared independently, is proposed as the direct precursor to the catalytic cycle involving rearrangement of coordinated alkyne to Z… CONTINUE READING
