Transition metal borylene complexes: boron analogues of classical organometallic systems

Author affiliations

Abstract

In the ten years since the first examples of terminal borylene complexes were reported, rapid advances in the chemistry of this ligand class have been made, and parallels emerged with classical organometallic ligand systems (such as carbenes, vinylidenes and even CO) as well as with other subvalent main group ligand systems. This article reviews key developments in synthetic, structural and reaction chemistry, with particular attention focusing on recent discoveries in the field.
