Rhenium-catalysed C(sp3)-H bond borylation in the absence of any oxidant, hydrogen acceptor, or external ligand, with the generation of H2 as the sole byproduct is described. The transformation, which represents a rare example of rhenium-catalysed C(sp3)-H bond functionalisation, features high atom efficiency and simple reaction conditions. This journal is
