A series of frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs) based on the Lewis acids tris(perchloroaryl)borane (BAr(Cl)), and tris(2,2',2''-perfluorobiphenyl)borane (PBB) and trialkylphosphines were prepared; their ability to effect the heterolytic cleavage of dihydrogen, insert carbon dioxide into the borohydride, and reduce the resulting formatoborate to methanol were studied. Additionally, the insertion of CO(2) into a B-OH bond is explored with the ultimate aim of developing a homogeneous, catalytic prepar...Expand abstract
