Diboron as a reductant for nickel-catalyzed reductive coupling: rational design and mechanistic studies

Chem. Commun., 2015, Advance Article
DOI: 10.1039/C4CC08703H, Communication
Guoying Zhang, Yinjun Xie, Zhengkun Wang, Yang Liu, Hanmin Huang
Diboron (B2pin2) has been identified as an efficient and environmentally benign reducing reagent for reductive coupling reactions for the first time, which enables the nickel-catalyzed reductive tetramerization of alkynes to be performed with high efficiency in the presence of formal substoichiometric amounts of (0.3 equiv.) the reductant.
