This company, a Johnson Matthey Co., has published a 188-page catalog and technical document that outlines the chemical properties and highlights the main synthetic uses of boronic acids and related chemicals. A major role in modern chemistry is played by organoboron compounds, from which boronic acids have emerged in a leading position. With the discovery of a wealth of new chemistry, in particular the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction, together with their accessibility and ease of handling, boronic acids and boronates are now established as intermediates of value and versatility. Applications abound in synthesis, catalysis, analytical chemistry and biological systems.
Alfa Aesar offers a range of more than 1500 boronic acids, esters and organotrifluoroborates; this publication outlines the chemical properties and highlights the main synthetic uses of these versatile molecules. The catalog also includes a listing of the company’s range of boronic acids, boronic esters, oxazaborolidine reagents, coupling and hydroboration catalysts, phosphine ligands, and boronylation reagents.
