The 1,1-Carboboration reaction

21 January 2011 - Nice to have

carboboration_Chen_2010.svg.png What: 1,1-carboboration, cleavage of a carbon-boron bond by terminal alkyne
Variation of: hydroboration
Reverse of: Fritsch-Buttenberg-Wiechell reaction
Most recent incantation: Chen et al. 2011 => DOI
Specifics: the carboboration of 5-phenyl-1-pentyne is followed by photochemical cis/trans isomerization and then followed by palladium catalyzed coupling reaction with iodobenzene
