[(NHC)Fe(CO)4] Efficient Pre-catalyst for Selective Hydroboration of Alkenes

Abstract : [(IMes)Fe(CO)4] [IMes=1,3-bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl) imidazol-2-ylidene] complex was found to be an efficient pre-catalyst for the hydroboration of functional alkenes in the presence of pinacolborane at room temperature. Notably, UV irradiation (350 nm) is important to promote this catalytic transformation. Interestingly, high chemo- and regioselectivities were observed as only anti-Markovnikov boronate derivatives were obtained and various functional groups can be tolerated.
