Boron-containing π-conjugated molecules offer a substantial application potential in the field of organic electronics. During the last decade, aryl(hydro)boranes have established themselves as versatile novel building blocks for sophisticated boron-doped materials. This perspective article comprehensively discusses key structural motifs and reactivity patterns of recently developed aryl(hydro)boranes and shows how these have been used for the synthesis of macromolecular organoboranes through hydroboration polymerisation, ring-opening polymerisation and condensation polymerisation protocols.
