Many diols are best handled with boronic acids. Al-kyl boronates were used extensively in the 1970s

The action of methaneboronate on the corticosteroid (structure [VIII]) leads to an interesting rearrangement in the side chain and the selective reaction of the ds-diol group of prostaglandin F allows it to be distinguished (after silylation) from the structure with a trans-diol group, which does not react (structure [IX] ). Boronates as reagents for GC analysis are now rather ancient history but they do represent a considerable amount of successful past effort.
