High impact information on trifluoroborane

  • For the purpose of retaining D/L-amino acid configuration in sequencing, we used an aprotic acid, i.e., the Lewis acid boron trifluoride (BF3), for the cyclization/cleavage reaction [3].
  • METHODS: The fatty acid composition of cell lipids was determined by gas chromatography after transesterification in the presence of boron trifluoride and methanol [4].
  • Precolumn derivatization of pipemidic acid was achieved by a methylation reaction with boron trifluoride in methanol after extraction from plasma with chloroform containing 4% ethanol [5].
  • The mechanisms for the uncatalyzed and boron trifluoride (BF3) assisted Baeyer-Villiger reactions between acetone and hydrogen peroxide have been investigated using high level ab initio [MP2 and CCSD(T)] and density functional theory (B3LYP) methods [6].
  • Standard procedures were used for the preparation of the educts and the glyco lipids: trichloracetimidate procedure for the preparation of long-chained compounds, glycosylation using the beta-peracetate and boron trifluoride etherate was successful for the preparation of lipids with a medium-alkyl chain length [7].

Biological context of trifluoroborane

  • Esterification of free fatty acids and transesterification of phospholipid linked fatty acids were achieved with 14% boron trifluoride in methanol (BF3-CH3OH) in 20 s and 50 s, respectively, under low power microwave irradiation (60 W) with a post-reaction cooling of less than 5 min [8].
