New publication in Chem Catalysis

In this paper, we present a broadly applicable method for the C–H borylation of various alkenes, that is, a valuable transformation in the synthesis of fine chemicals, such as pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. Importantly, the reaction tolerates a plethora of functional groups and can be used for the late-stage functionalization of complex bioactive molecules, such as derivatives of zearalenol and brompheniramine. The study provides insight into the reaction mechanism and the features controlling the selectivity, thereby setting the stage for the development of other related valuable reactions.

Congrats to all!
