[ Vol. 9 , Issue. 6 ]


Sanjay V. Malhotra and Herbert C. Brown   Pages 383 - 385 ( 3 )


A convenient and simple method for synthesis of primary amines has been developed by direct amination of B- Chlorodialkylboranes. This general procedure has been applied to synthesize acyclic, cyclic, hindered and chiral amines in very high yields using both hydroxylamine-O-sulfonic acid and monochloroamine as reagents.


Amination, B-Chlorodialkylboranes, chiral amine, organoborane, hydroxy-lamine-O-sulfonic, nitrogen, alkyl group, methyldialkylborane, chlorodialkylborane, water
