Spontaneous hydrogen evolution: The structural chemistry and dehydrocoupling behavior of aniline–borane and related primary arylamine–borane adducts has been explored in detail for the first time. These labile donor–acceptor species have been found to undergo “spontaneous” loss of hydrogen without the need for an externally added catalyst. The reaction proceeds via a series of intermediates to yield cyclotriborazanes, borazines, and unexpected oligomeric products via mechanistic pathways of surprising complexity (see scheme).
