I am studying Reaction in alkenes and alkynes. In there the term Hydroboration Hydrolysis has been used but has not been explained. I tried searching online but I could only find Hydroboration Oxidation but I already know that. So are they the same?. Can someone refer an article (I am in high school) or explain it here?

    $\begingroup$ When you hydroborate an alkene such as cyclohexene, you produce an alkyl borane. You have effected a reduction of the carbon of the C-B bond because boron is more electropositive than carbon. Hydrolysis, sometimes with aqueous acetic acid, produces cyclohexane and $\ce{B(OH)3}$. If the alkylborane is treated with alkaline $\ce{H2O2}$, oxidation occurs and cyclohexanol is formed. $\endgroup$
