Abstract

The rhodium-carbene complex Rh(PPh3)(2)(IMes)Cl (2) is an active catalyst for the hydroboration of simple olefins at room temperature. The reactivity of 2 was also tested in the methylenation of aldehydes. The crystal structure of 2 is also reported (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
