Double duty: Aminoorganoboron (AOB) complexes recognize alcohol and β-dicarbonyl units, and thereby facilitate chemo- and site-selective alcoholysis of the latter (see scheme). The complex activates both reaction partners. This strategy enables C[BOND]C, C[BOND]N, and C[BOND]O bond cleavage in addition/elimination reactions under near neutral pH conditions and provides a new method for functional group conversions.
