Potassium trifluoro(organo)borates, which are highly stable and easily prepared organoboron derivatives, were able to react with various dehydroamino esters to alanine derivatives in good to high yields. This reaction, catalyzed by rhodium complexes, tolerates a great variety of amino protecting groups.

β-Functionalized sulfonamides were produced in good yields by the regioselective ring opening of N-tosylaziridines with trimethylsilylated nucleophiles, catalyzed by N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine (TMEDA).
