A mild and regioselective cleavage of ethers with formation of alkyl bromides is possible with 9-bromo-9-borabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane. Representative examples are given in Scheme 27. As illustrated by the reaction of (R)-2-methoxyoctane, the procedure leads predominantly to an inversion of the stereogenic carbon center. By comparison of the optical rotation of starting material and 2-bromooctane obtained, the degree of inversion has been determined to be 73% (Scheme 27). In unsymmetrically substituted ethers, the higher branched residue is converted into the bromide predominantly (tertiary > secondary > primary). However, in the case of butyl isobutyl ether, 1-bromobutane (27, R1=Bu) is obtained as the major product.[‌107‌]
