new catalytic procedures. Thus, we have decided to develop a mild neutral approach for the synthesis of allenyl-Bpin derivatives, which is based on Pd-catalysis (eq 2). To our surprise using solely Pd as a catalyst proved to be inefficient for the transformation of propargylic alcohol derivatives under the reaction conditions that were optimal for the borylation of the analogous allyl alcohol derivatives.3a−d Instead of borylation only rearrangement and elimination reactions occurred usually independently from the presence or absence of B2pin2 (1). We have found that propargyl carbonates or other derivatives of propargyl alcohol can be borylated with high yields, if a bimetallic Pd/Cu catalyst system is employed (eq 2). The optimized conditions involved a propargylic carbonate substrate (such as 3a), B2pin2 (1) as the boronate source, and the use of both Pd(PPh3)4 and CuI in catalytic amounts without any addition of base (Table 1). Phosphonate as a leaving group can

ABSTRACT: Bimetallic Pd/Cu and Pd/Ag catalytic systems were used for borylation of propargylic alcohol derivatives. The substrate scope includes even terminal alkynes. The reactions proceed stererospecifically with formal SN2′ pathways to give allenyl boronates. Opening of propargyl epoxides leads to 1,2-diborylated butadienes probably via en allenylboronate intermediate.


llenyl and propargyl boronates are very useful reagents in organic synthesis for the preparation of stereo- and regiodefined allenes and propagylic compounds via C−C bond formation.1 Yet, access to these reagents is severely limited by the relatively few synthetic methods available.1i−l,2 In the past decade a number of very useful transition-metal-catalyzed procedures have been reported for the synthesis of the structurally related allyl boronates,3 which fostered increased activity in the field of carbonyl allylboration. However, particularly few methods have been reported for the transition-metal-catalyzed transformation of propargylic substrates to allenyl and propargyl boronate derivatives.2a As far as we know, the only catalytic transformation was reported by Ito and Sawamura2a using B2pin2 (1) as a boronate source with propargylic carbonates in the presence of the CuOt-Bu catalyst (eq 1). This procedure has been one of the most important
