Outer-sphere direction in iridium C-H borylation. Academic Article uri icon


  • The NHBoc group affords ortho selective C-H borylations in arenes and alkenes. Experimental and computational studies support an outer sphere mechanism where the N-H proton hydrogen bonds to a boryl ligand oxygen. The regioselectivities are unique and complement those of directed ortho metalations.
