Abstract: Primary aminoboranes (RNHBR2), which are readily available by spontaneous dehydrocoupling of amines and boranes cleanly react at room temperature with aldehydes to give aldimines. The overall transformation from amines to aldimines can be conveniently performed by a sequential one-pot reaction. This synthetic strategy is especially useful for electron poor and bulky amines which are reluctant to react with aldehydes under dehydration conditions. Using a Glorius robustness screen, we show that this methodology is chemoselective, and functional group tolerant. Computational and experimental data support the irreversible formation of the aldimine product in marked contrast with traditional methods.

Scope And Content

Data pertaining to each computed pathway, for the reaction between aldehydes and aminoboranes, can be downloaded. Within each .zip file are a number of folders containing .log, .chk, and .fchk files for each species along the reaction coordinate. Some folders contain additional subfolders.
