Abstract
Borane, as a DMS or a THF complex, can efficiently reduce a large range of ferrocenyl derivatives (aldehydes, ketones, ethers, acetals, carboxylic aci ds, esters,...) if they bear at least one oxygen at a carbon at the a posit ion. On the contrary, similar molecules, which contain nitrogen instead of oxygen, do not react with borane. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
