A new synthetic protocol developed by a research team from UNIST, a leading Korean university, has revealed that boron/nitrogen co-doping is only feasible when carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) is treated with boron tribromide (BBr3) and nitrogen (N2) gas.
Intramolecular cyclization was achieved through the reaction of the isoxazole ring with pyridinium tribromide. The proposed mechanism of intramolecular cyclization involves the activation of the isoxazoline ring with bromine to form a bromonium ion.
