amine-borane adduct


Recommended Posts

hey everyone,


I was reading the inorganic book today and i have got a question. say we have an amine-borane adduct lets take (CH3)3CH2N:BH3, can it undergo redox or acid-base reactions? I mean the adduct doesnt act as a base because the empty 2p orbital on B is filled when Nitrogen in (CH3)3CNH2 datively forms a bond with BH3 so I am thinking that it cant have undergo any acid-base reaction. Can anyone tell me if I am thinking rightly here. I will be grateful for any direction.
