I do not have chemdraw. the 2nd rxn scheme under the Asymmetric aza-BH heading showing the synthesis of the ionic liquid solvent discussed therein has an error. the 2nd product/step in the rxn shows 2 malic acid molecules coordinated to a boron center. note that the malic acid molecule depicted on the right side of the formula has a 5 carbon skeleton, whereas it should have a 4 carbon skeleton. this mistake is repeated in the 3rd formula —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:08, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

In the first rxn scheme is a mistake: The negatively charged nitrogene gets another electronpair to get 10(!). Guess it should just get the proton and some arrows got to be the other way round, so phosphorus gets his electrons back. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:35, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
