Abstract

Three-component carboboration of alkenes takes place efficiently by the reaction with a diboron compound and carbon electrophiles with the aid of a copper–NHC catalyst. The carboboration afforded diverse multisubstituted borylalkanes via the regio­selective formation of carbon–boron and carbon–carbon bonds.
