Aliphatic terminal alkenes react with pinacolborane at ambient temperature to afford dehydrogenative borylation compounds as the major product when iPr-Foxap is used as the ligand with cationic rhodium(I) in the presence of norbornene, which acts as the sacrificial hydrogen acceptor. The reaction is applied to the one-pot syntheses of aldehydes and homoallylic alcohols from aliphatic terminal alkenes.
