Development of B(MIDA)-based directing groups for C-H functionalization

Lead Research Organisation: Imperial College London
Department Name: Dept of Chemistry


The practical advantages of using 'protected' boronic acid derivatives such as B(MIDA) derivatives will be expanded to permit their use as functional directing groups for transition metal catalyzed C-H functionalization ortho of aryl-B(OH)2 derivatives as well as for alkenyl-Csp2 and alkyl-Csp3 functionalizaiton. Givent he wide spread commercialization of these functionalities, we expect that a successful demonstration of these new directing B(MIDA) derivatives will be of importance to chemical industries, including the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and material industries.
