What is good about using bulky borane in alkyne reaction?

  1. Dec 16, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Give two advantageous reasons for using bulky borane (9BBN) for hydroboration of alkynes.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm thinking it might have to do with the size of alkynes and bulky reagents, but I'm really not sure.
