Although usually purchased, BMS can be prepared by absorbing diborane into dimethyl sulfide:[3]. THF requires sodium borohydride to inhibit reduction of THF to tributyl borate. Reduction of Carboxylic Acid Derivatives to Alcohols, Ethers and Amines. Synthesis of the indolizidine alkaloid swainsonine from d-glucose. Reply. Although a structure of BMS has not been determined crystallographically, (pentafluorophenyl)-borane dimethylsulfide (C6F5BH2SMe2), has been examined by X-ray crystallography. It also has an unpleasant smell. [4] The boron center adopts a tetrahedral geometry. Shouming Li, Shosuke Yamamura, Hiroki Hosomi, Shigeru Ohba. Convenient preparations of representative dialkylborane reagents using the new, highly reactive N-ethyl-N-isopropylaninine-borane reagent (BACH-EI™). 11. Synthesis of the tetracyclic ABCE ring subunit I, bearing the 13-membered azacycle, of manzamine A. D. Enders, U. Baus, P. Müller, K.C. )-(−)-MALIC ACID. Marek Zaidlewicz, Ofir Baum, Morris Srebnik. Due to the experimental ease of its use, BMS has become common in hydroboration reactions. Isosteres of natural phosphates. Organic Preparations and Procedures International. 14. Anthony G.M. In general BMS does not lead to significantly greater enantiomeric selectivities than borane-THF, however its increased stability in the presence of moisture and oxygen makes it the reagent of choice for the reduction. Enantiospecific synthesis of polhydroxylated indolizidines related to castanospermine: 1 (6R,7S,8aR)-6,7-dihydroxyindolizidine and (6R,7R,8S,8aR)-6,7,8-trihydroxyindolizidine..

Adam Mazur, Burton E. Tropp, Robert Engel. [2] BMS is soluble in most aprotic solvents. [6], Borane dimethylsulfide is flammable and reacts readily with water to produce a flammable gas. Chapter 25.

[5] In hydroborations with BMS, the dimethylsulfide dissociates in situ, liberating diborane, which rapidly adds to the unsaturated bonds. I was only looking for curly arrows for an undergrad tutorial question and found a lot more than I was looking for. The dimethylsulfide ligand attenuates the reactivity of the borane. Boranes add to alkenes in an anti-Markovnikov fashion and allow conversion of alkynes to the corresponding cis-alkenes. S By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. DOI: 10.1080/00397919108021056.

Borane dimethylsulfide (BMS) is a complexed borane reagent that is used for hydroborations and reductions.The advantages of BMS over other borane reagents, such as borane-tetrahydrofuran, are its increased stability and higher solubility. Acid chlorides and nitro groups are not reduced by BMS.
