In April’s chemistry highlight, we would like to recommend this article from Chattopadhyay’s group describing a new class of ligands for Iridium catalyzed CH Borylation. These ligands, not commercially available but readily accessible, show excellent reactivity and ortho-selectivity for diverse classes of aromatic substrates. A major addition in the CH borylation toolbox !! The scope is impressive, making this transformation the first robust procedure for ortho-CH Borylation.
