The metal-free ortho C–H borylation of benzaldehyde derivatives using a transient imine directing group was recently developed by our group, providing an efficient strategy for the synthesis of organoboron reagents. Herein, we report on an extensive investigation of the reaction mechanism using density functional theory (DFT) calculations.
