Hydroboration-oxidation reaction is the addition of borane followed by oxidation. For example, propene on hydroboration-oxidation gives propan-1-ol. The reaction of propene with diborane gives trialkyl borane as an addition product. Oxidation by hydrogen peroxide in presence of aqueous sodium hydroxide gives propan-1-ol.
