Stable Borocyclic Radicals via Frustrated Lewis Pair Hydrogenations.


The synthesis and isolation of stable main group radicals remains an ongoing challenge. Here we report the application of frustrated Lewis pair chemistry to the synthesis of boron-containing radicals. H2 activation with polyaromatic diones and B(C6F5)3 leads to radical formation in good yields. These radicals are robust; they do not decompose on silica gel… (More)
