Pinacolborane is used as a precursor of boronic esters by hydroboration or coupling reactions. It acts as a monofunctional hydroborating agent. It is used in the synthesis of unsymmetrical biaryls through aromatic C-H borylation-cross-coupling sequence. It is involved in the preparation of 4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-2-thiophen-2-yl-[1,3,2]dioxaborolane by reacting with 2-iodo-thiophene. Further, it is used to prepare vinylboronates by palladium-catalyzed coupling with alkenyl triflates and iodides.


Air sensitive and moisture sensitive. Store in a cool place. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, strong acids, water, bases and alcohols.

Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. - No smoking. Keep away from any possible contact with water, because of violent reaction and possible flash fire. Handle under inert gas. Protect from moisture. Keep container tightly closed. Keep cool. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. Use explosion-proof electrical/ventilating/lighting/ equipment. Use only non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Wash face, hands and any exposed skin thoroughly after handling Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection. IF ON SKIN (or hair): Remove/Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/shower. IF INHALED: Remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician if you feel unwell. If skin irritation occurs: Get medical advice/attention. Brush off loose particles from skin. Immerse in cool water/wrap in wet bandages. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
