Scholarcy highlights

  • Detailed facts of importance to specialist readers are published as ”Supporting Information”
  • Attack with π electrons: Reduction of a chloroborole coordinated by an N-heterocyclic carbene results in the formation of a carbene-stabilized borole monoanion, the molecular structure of which has been determined by X-ray analysis
  • Computational and reactivity studies of this boracycle confirm the presence of a π-nucleophilic boron atom, which represents a rare example in the chemistry of boryl anions
