Discrete 3-coordinate borenium salts 1c and 1d are accessed by cooperative Lewis acid/base pair-mediated heterolytic splitting of the B-H bond in pinacolborane by B(C6F5)3•DABCO or Ph3C+/DABCO, respectively. The resulting salts are competent catalysts in the reduction of a broad range of imines and can be generated in-situ. Moreover, a mechanistic framework for borenium-catalysis is proposed based on experimental evidence. This suggests the reaction proceeds by borenium-activation of the imine substrate followed by counterintuitive hydride delivery from HBPin (with the assistance of DABCO) rather than from the HB(C6F5)3- anion, contrary to typical mechanisms of reduction in FLP systems.
