Phenylallene reacts rapidly with ClB(C6F5)2 to give the respective 2-borylindene. Several substituted allenylarenes form the respective 2-B(C6F5)2 boryl-substituted indenes upon treatment with ClB(C6F5)2 or BrB(C6F5)2 as well. Bis- and tris-allenylarenes form the corresponding products featuring multiple five-membered ring annulations{,} including a symmetrical tris-borylated dihydro-1H-trindene derivative. The B(C6F5)2 borylindenes show fluorescence properties.
