 Abstract: An analysis of the metal-free reduction of electron deficient olefins by frustrated Lewis pairs indicates that the rate-determining step might be either the heterolytic cleavage of H2 to form an -onium borohydride salt, or the subsequent transfer of the hydride moiety to the substrate following a Michael-type addition reaction. While the use of strong Lewis acids such as B(C6F5)3 facilitates the first of these processes, hydride transfer to the olefin should be contrarily favoured by the use of weak Lewis acids which, for this very same reason, might be unable to promote the prior H2 split. After systematic testing of several boranes of different Lewis acidity (assessed by using the Childs’ method) and steric demand, an optimal situation that employs tris(2,4,6-trifluorophenyl)borane was reached. Mixtures of this borane with 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO) exhibited excellent catalytic activity for the hydrogenation of alkylidene malonates. In fact, this transformation could be achieved under milder conditions than those we reported previously. Moreover, the reaction scope could be expanded to other electron deficient olefins containing esters, sulfones or nitro functionalities as electron-withdrawing substituents.
