A copper-catalyzed synthesis of benzyl-, allyl-, and allenyl-boronates from benzylic, allylic, and propargylic alcohols, respectively, exhibits a broad reaction scope and high efficiency under mild conditions. Preliminarily mechanistic studies suggest that nucleophilic substitution is involved in this reaction.
