Abstract An efficient flow process for the selective hydroboration and oxidation of different alkenes using 9‐BBN allows facile conversion in high productivity (1.4 g/h) of amorpha‐4,11‐diene to the corresponding alcohol, which is an advanced intermediate in the synthesis of the antimalarial drug artemisinin. The in situ reaction of borane and 1,5‐cyclooctadiene using a simple flow generator proved to be a cost efficient solution for the generation of 9‐BBN.
