Title: Hydroboration of Alkenes catalyzed by rhodium compounds
Author: Yang, Lu
Abstract: Hydroboration of 1-octene in the presence of RhCl3-Aliquat 336 catalyst for different reaction times ( 24, 10, 5 and 2 hours ), results in 2-octanol as the major product , which means that Markovnikov addition is the major process . Different solvents and temperatures caused some changes of product ratio of 2-octanol to 1- octanol. The same catalyst system has been found to hydroborate styrene in an anti- Markovnikov fashion.
