Unsymmetrical Diborane(4) Derivatives: A Comparative Study

Unsymmetrical Diborane(4) Derivatives: A Comparative Study
Corinna Borner, Maximilian T. Wiecha, Christian Kleeberg
Since its introduction in 2010 by Suginome et al., pinB–Bdan [pin = OCMe2CMe2O, dan = (NH)2(C10H6)] has become a valuable reagent in various regioselective (bis-)borylation reactions, and related unsymmetrical diborane(4) derivatives have been used as versatile precursors for diaminoboryl complexes. However, the unsymmetrical diborane(4) derivatives employed show little variation of the diol and diamine moieties. The present study expands this class of compounds and reports the synthesis of unsymmetrical diborane(4) derivatives [C2H4(tBuN)2]B–B(NMe2)2 and [C2H4(tBuN)2]B–B(NMe2)Cl, bearing a sterically demanding non-aromatic diamine moiety, as well as [C6H4(HN)2]B–B(O2C5H10), [C6H4(HN)2]B–B(O2C2H4), and [C6H4(HN)2]B–B[O2C6H2(C2H9)2], which illustrate the variability of the diol moiety. Fully characterization of all compounds including single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies allows for the first time a comparative discussion of the spectroscopic and structural properties of this class of compounds.The synthesis of four novel unsymmetrical diborane(4) derivatives and their spectroscopic and structural characterization is reported. These data allow the first comparative study within this class of compounds.
