Hydroboration is a reaction that is becoming increasingly used in the synthesis of many organic compounds as it is typically chemo-selective and the hydroborated product leads to a number of synthetic routes. These reactions are traditionally catalyzed by expensive transition metals. To explore a more efficient catalyst, the use of a cyclic carbodiphosphorane catalyst has been investigated. This catalyst can be prepared in a two-step synthesis and is very reactive due to a carbon containing two lone pairs. This, in turn, makes the catalyst an excellent nucleophile. The research being presented will explore the hydroboration of isocyanates and test the overall efficiency of this catalyst in providing the expected products.
