We are pleased to provide a wide range of boronic acids & derivatives, including boronate esters, trifluoroborate salts, and MIDA boronate esters. All of our boronic acid derivatives are offered as alkyl, alkenyl, aryl and heteroaryl derivatives.
Research in the Hall Group is centered on organoboron chemistry and explores various applications of boronic acid derivatives in reaction development, catalysis, natural product synthesis, and chemical biology. Hall and his co-workers have pioneered the concept of "Boronic Acid Catalysis”
While the 1,2-addition of Grignard reagents to ketones is undoubtedly a powerful transformation, oftentimes selectivity issues arising from competitive alpha-deprotonation detract from the use of these reagents.
