Activation parameters of the interconversion of geometric isomers 6a and 6b were determined by a complete lineshape analysis of the temperature-dependent 13C NMR spectra of 7,8-dipropyl-7-borabicyclo[4.2.2]deca-2,4,9-triene (6). For the reaction 6a → 6b, ΔG*298 = 52.2±0.1 kJ mol-1, ΔH* = 27.9±0.5 kJ mol-1, ΔS* = -82±8 J mol-1 K-1; For the reaction 6b → 6a, ΔG*298 = 52.6±0.1 kJ mol-1, ΔH* = 24.7±0.5 kJ mol-1, ΔS* = -93±10 J mol-1 K-1. The interconversion of deuteropyridine complexes 9a and 9b proceeds via their dissociation, which indicates that the rearrangement of borane 6 occurs according to the [1,3]-B shift mechanism.
