It's all new to B: In the reaction of borylene complex 1 with benzophenone, a Meerwein–Ponndorf β-hydride transfer from the aminoborylene ligand to the coordinated ketone generates 2 (see structure), the first example of an imine-donor-stabilized borylene complex, and the first cationic alkoxyborylene system.
