      Gevorgyan, Ashot; Obst, Marc; Guttormsen, Yngve; Maseras, Feliu; Hopmann, Kathrin Helen; Bayer, Annette (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-11)
      A caesium fluoride-mediated hydrocarboxylation of olefins is disclosed that does not rely on precious transition metal catalysts and ligands. The reaction occurs at atmospheric pressures of CO<sub>2</sub> in the presence of 9-BBN as a stoichiometric reductant. Stilbenes, β-substituted styrenes and allenes could be carboxylated in good yields. The developed methodology can be used for preparation of ...
