Lithium tert-butyltrialkylborates are capable of chemisorbing oxygen. The activation energy for thermal desorption of oxygen from [t-C4H9OB(OR)3]Li·nO2 at 298-548 K increases with decreasing degree of O2 sorption and with increasing length of the alkyl substituent; for complexes with R=n-C4H9, n-C7H15, and n-C10H21, the values increase from 48.90 to 70.92 kJ/mole.
