Boron complexes in organic synthesis

Eva M. Israel, James W.B. Fyfe, Allan J.B. Watson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This article focuses on contemporary applications of boron complexes in organic synthesis—where the unique reactivity of B-containing reagents or catalysts is integral to a synthetic purpose. The coverage includes major developments and new research areas such as transition metal-free borylation and cross-coupling processes, photoredox methodologies, the emergence of catalytic processes using B-containing catalysts, and the advances made in the use of metalate and boryl anion strategies.
