Pd(ITMe)(2)(PhC CPh) acts as a highly reactive pre-catalyst in the unprecedented homogenous catalyzed diboration of terminal and internal alkynes, yielding a number of novel and known syn-1,2-diborylalkenes in a 100% stereoselective manner. DFT calculations suggest that a similar reaction pathway to that proposed for platinum phosphine analogues is followed, and that destabilization of key intermediates by the NHCs is vital to the overall success for the palladium-catalyzed B-B addition to alkynes.
