Bis(imino)pyridine iron dinitrogen complexes have been shown to promote the anti-Markovnikov catalytic hydroboration of terminal, internal, and geminal alkenes with high activity and selectivity. The isolated iron dinitrogen compounds offer distinct advantages in substrate scope and overall performance over known precious metal catalysts and previously reported in situ generated iron species.
