  • I’m frustrated—why do I seem so invisible to you Piers' borane [HB(C6F5)2] forms a Lewis acid/Lewis base adduct B with the enamine A. This reacts with dihydrogen via the “invisible” frustrated N/B Lewis pair C, probably formed by means of hydroboration under equilibrium conditions, to yield the zwitterionic ammonium/hydrido- borate product D.
