Aza-Matteson Homologations: Selective Mono- and Double-Carbenoid Insertions into Aminoboranes

2021 Synfacts  
oped a valuable strategy allowing for carbenoid insertions into C-B bonds. While this homologation reaction has been thoroughly investigated, its extension to N-B bonds remained unexplored. The authors describe an aza-Matteson homologation leading to the selective construction of various -and -substituted amines, which are versatile, synthetically useful building blocks for further transformation.
