Poly(trimethylene sulfide)–borane adduct has been used as an efficient borane reagent in hydroboration reactions to produce various organoboranes, which have then been used without isolation in further reactions that involve single, double and triple migrations of alkyl groups. The presence of the polymer causes no problems, but there are practical advantages associated with its use, including lack of odour and easy recoverability.
