- An unprecedented α-C–H borylation of secondary alcohols was successfully achieved and delivered various tertiary α-boryl alcohols via [Ru]/[Fe] relay catalysis. The dehydrogenation catalyst (Ru) and borylation catalyst (Fe) interacted to increase the chemoselectivity. By installing the “platform functional group” Bpin via this α-C–H borylation, several alcoholic α-C–H and C–O bond functionalizations were successfully achieved.
