New method for hydroboration of alkynes: Radicals induce unusual selectivity

A combination of organoboron and radical chemistry generates unusual trans-selectivity in hydroboration of alkynes. The use of N-heterocyclic carbene boranes is key to the success of this chemical transformation. This study is expected to open the door to the development of new boron-containing materials.
