The hydroboration reactions of propene with 1,3,2-dithiaborolane and 1,3,2-dithiaborinane in their ground states have been studied using density functional theory (DFT) at the B3LYP/3-21+G and B3LYP/6-31+G(d) levels. Hydroboration and disproportionation transition states have been determined and activation energies for these transition states were compared. It has been shown that hydroboration reactions require slightly higher activation energies than disproportionation, and yield thermodynamically more stable products.
