Acta Crystallogr C. 2003 Oct;59(Pt 10):O596-7. Epub 2003 Sep 23.The first reported structure of a pyridin-2-ylboron derivative, viz. the title compound, C(11)H(15)BBrNO(2), (I), is compared with its regioisomer 2-bromo-5-(4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-1,3,2-dioxaborolan-2-yl)pyridine, (II) [Sopková-de Oliveira Santos, Lancelot, Bouillon & Rault (2003). Acta Cryst. C59, o111-o113]. Structural differences are observed, firstly in the orientation of the dioxaborolane ring with respect to the pyridine ring and secondly in the bond angles of the BO(2) group. Read More
