Structural changes accompanying the stepwise population of a B-C pi bond. Academic Article uri icon


  • Get Shorty: The central boron-carbon bond of an -borylated carbocation undergoes a noticeable shortening upon reduction by one and two electrons, and the degree of twisting about this bond is also noticeably reduced (see graph). According to both experiment and theory, these effects result from the sequential population of the central boron-carbon bond. (Graph Presented). 2007 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH &. Co. KGaA.
