Brønsted acid-catalyzed reactions of trifluoroborates

Recently, we discovered that HBF4 catalyzes the reactions of trifluoroborate salts with benzhydryl alcohols, acetals and ketals. Brønsted acid-catalyzed reactions offer excellent functional group tolerance including phenol, carboxylic acid and amide.
