Heraclio López-Ruiz y S. Z. Zard. A flexible Access to Highly Functionalised Boronates. Chem. Commun. 2618-2619 (2001) DOI: 10.1039/B109637K
The radical addition of various xanthates to allyl or vinyl boronates occurs smoothly in the presence of a small amount of lauroyl peroxide as initiator to give good yields of usefully functionalised boronates.
