- An air- and water-stable CCC–NHC pincer Rh complex catalyzed the 1,4-addition of aryl boronic acids to α,β-unsaturated ketones and aldehydes. This bench top method proceeds in eco-friendly solvents including methanol and water. The scope of boronic acids was expanded to include heterocyclic examples.
