The organoactinide-catalyzed monohydroboration of carbodiimides is reported herein. The catalytic reactions proceed under very mild conditions in a highly atom-efficient and highly selective fashion to afford the corresponding monohydroborated N-borylformamidine products in high yields. A plausible mechanism is proposed based on stoichiometric and kinetic studies.
