A two-step reaction to convert terminal alkynes into triborylalkenes is reported. In the first step, the terminal alkyne and pinacolborane (HBpin) are converted into an alkynylboronate, which is catalyzed by an iridium complex supported by a SiNN pincer ligand. In the second step, treatment of the reaction mixture with CO generates a new catalyst which mediates dehydrogenative diboration of alkynylboronate with pinacolborane. The mechanism of the diboration remains unclear but it does not proceed via intermediacy of hydroboration products or via B2 pin2.
