Aesar, a Johnson Matthey company, has published a new 56-page technical
document which outlines the chemical properties and highlights the main synthetic
uses of boronic acids and related chemicals.
A major role in modern chemistry is played by organoboron compounds, among
which boronic acids have emerged in a leading position. With the discovery of
a wealth of new chemistry, in particular the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction,
together with their accessibility and ease of handling, boronic acids and boronates
are now established as intermediates of great value and versatility. Applications
abound in synthesis, catalysis, analytical chemistry and biological systems.
Since the commercial introduction of a small range of boronic acids by the
former Lancaster Synthesis Ltd., more than thirty years have elapsed during
which the astonishing growth of interest in this area of chemistry has been
paralleled by an enormous increase in the diversity of examples available from
commercial sources, including Alfa Aesar. With a recently expanded range of
well over 500 boronic acids, esters and organotrifluoroborates, Alfa Aesar can
provide outstanding synthetic and analytical expertise in these products.
The new publication outlines the chemical properties and highlights the main
synthetic uses of these versatile molecules. The book also includes a listing
of the Alfa Aesar range of boronic acids, boronic esters, oxazaborolidine reagents,
coupling and hydroboration catalysts, phosphine ligands and boronylation reagents.
