(Matrix presented) A new method for synthesizing the 2-spiro- boraadamantane pyridine complex (2) from 1-ethynylcyclohexylmethyl ether has been developed. The chemistry has been applied to the synthesis of bis-2-spiro-1-boraadamantane-pyridine (1) from trans-1,4-diethynyl-1,4- dimethoxycyclohexane (8). This bis-Lewis acid serves as a self-assembling molecular building block with difunctional Lewis bases.
