Abstract

For the first time B-podands have been studied as an efficient and powerful catalysts in the ring opening of epoxides with azide anion in water. The reaction afforded the corresponding 1,2-azidoalcohols with high regioselectivity under mild reaction conditions and in a highly atom economic fashion.
