An efficient pyridyl-directed Rh(III)-catalyzed o-carborane B(3)–H acyloxylation is reported. The B(3)–H bond is the most electron-deficient vertex on o-carborane whose functionalization is challenging. The combination of Cu(OH)2 and diverse carboxylic acids provides low cost and abundant acyloxyl sources which could lead to moderate to excellent yields.
