Cyclic glycol esters of trialkylcarbinylboric acids were synthesized from trialkylboranes and carbon monoxide in 60–70% yield, while tertiary alcohols were obtained by their oxidation.
The addition of small amounts of sodium metal changed the direction of the reaction, which made it possible to obtain secondary alcohols.
