Boron Chemistry

Many of our current projects in the area of boron chemistry are centered around the synthesis and application of ammonia- and amine-boranes.

We have used ammonia- and amine-boranes for applications typical or borane reagents, such as hydroboration, reduction, and reductive amination, in addition to catalytic and stoichiometric amidation protocols, conversion to aminoboranes, as well as the borylation of terminal alkynes and haloarenes.
