What happens when isobutylene is subjected to hydroboration oxidation reaction?

Iso-butylene when subjected to hydroboration oxidation reaction yields. The hydroboration oxidation of any alkene will give the alcohol as the product and the OH group will attach to the the carbon which is less hindered. Hence isobutylene on hydroboration oxidation will isobutyl alcohol.

Keeping this in consideration, what is THF in Hydroboration oxidation?

In organic chemistry, the hydroborationoxidation reaction is a two-step hydration reaction that converts an alkene into an alcohol. Tetrahydrofuran (THF) is the archetypal solvent used for hydroboration.

Subsequently, question is, is Hydroboration oxidation regioselective? Hydroboration-oxidation. A two-step reaction that converts an alkane double bond to a single bond, with regioselective and stereoselective addition of a hydroxyl group.

Similarly, you may ask, what is meant by hydroboration oxidation reaction with example?

Hydroboration-oxidation reaction is the addition of borane followed by oxidation. For example, propene on hydroboration-oxidation gives propan- 1-ol. The reaction of propene with diborane gives trialkyl borane as an addition product.

What does THF do in a reaction?

THF is nothing but tetrahydro furon,which is cyclic ether and has ability to donate pair of electrons and acts as Lewis base. In THF boranes get stabilised due to formation of BH3-THF complex and it helps to proceed the reaction further.
