Abstract

Ferrocenes, which are typically air-stable outer-sphere single-electron transfer reagents, were found to react with dioxygen in the presence of B(C_6F_5)_3, a Lewis acid unreactive to O_2, to generate bis(borane) peroxide. Although several Group 13 peroxides have been reported, boron-supported peroxides are rare, with no structurally characterized examples of the BO_2B moiety. The synthesis of a bis(borane)-supported peroxide anion and its structural and electrochemical characterization are described.
