  • Publication number: 20150119580
    Abstract: Boronic esters and boronic acids are synthesized at ambient temperature in an ethereal solvent by the reaction of Grignard reagents with a boron-containing substrate. The boron-containing substrate may be a boronic ester such as pinacolborane, neopentylglycolborane, or a dialkylaminoborane compound such as diisopropylaminoborane. The Grignard reagents may be pre-formed or generated from an alkyl, alkenyl, aryl, arylalkyl, heteroaryl, vinyl, or allyl halide compound and Mg0. When the boron-containing substrate is a boronic ester, the reactions generally proceed at room temperature without added base in about 1 to 3 hours to form a boronic ester compound. When the boron-containing substrate is a dialkylaminoborane compound, the reactions generally proceed to completion at 0° C. in about 1 hour to form a boronic acid compound.
