The reaction of arylboronic acids with L-O-benzoyl-tartaric acid and D,L-malic acid has been studied. The obtained (acyloxy)boranes are moderately stable in solution and decompose to give boroxines. 5-Carboxymethyl-2-(4-methylthiophenyl)-1,3,2-dioxaborolan-4-one was obtained in the reaction of 4-methylthiophenylboronic acid with D,L-malic acid and characterized by X-ray structural analysis. The use of L-(−)-malic acid afforded the optically pure product which can be used as the powerful chiral reagent in the enantioselective reduction of ketones.
