        The FLP species 1-BR2-2-NMe2-C6H4 (R   = 2,4,6-Me3C6H21,   2,4,5-Me3C6H22)   reacts with H2 in   sequential hydrogen activation and protodeborylation reactions to   give (1-BH2-2-NMe2-C6H4)23.   While 1 reacts   with H2/CO2 to   give formyl, acetal and   methoxy-derivatives, 2 reacts   with H2/CO2to   give C6H4(NMe2)(B(2,4,5-Me3C6H2)O)2CH24.   The mechanism of CO2 reduction   is considered.
