Precious iron: A new PNN iron complex has been developed for use in an iron-catalyzed alkene hydroboration reaction under mild conditions. The environmentally friendly and earth-abundant iron catalyst system is superior to precious-metal systems in terms of efficiency and selectivity for α-olefin hydroborations with pinacolborane.
