A recent work by Hartwig et al. (Science, 2020) details an efficient method to borylate strong primary C(sp3)–H bonds via iridium-catalysed C–H activation. The conditions confer counterintuitive selectivity over more labile C–H bonds, while providing an avenue for a gamut of synthetically valuable late-stage functionalisations through versatile borylate intermediates.
