    • Abstract

       

      The hydroboration reactions of acetaldehyde and acetone have been investigated by the MNDO method. The reactions have been shown to be twostep reactions involving an intermediate adduct. This adduct subsequently undergoes hydrogen rearrangement. The hydroboration reactions of acetaldehyde and acetone have been compared with the corresponding reaction of formaldehyde. The charge transfer effects accompanying these reactions have also been discussed.
