Subject - Organic Chemistry

Alkenes rapidly react with alkenes in a process called hydroboration. Since 1960, the development of this reaction was carried out, particularly by H. C. Brown and R. Köster, for the in situ preparation of organoboron compounds which on oxidation and hydrolysis yielded alcohols. The effect of hydroboration is an anti-Markovnikov hydration of alkenes.
