Abstract

Since the synthesis of the first structurally authentic examples of transition metal complexes with bridging borylene ligands in 1995, and transition metal complexes that feature terminally bound borylene ligands three years later, investigations into this field of chemistry have continued steadily. Being closely related to pivotal organometallic compounds, such as carbene, vinylidene, and especially carbonyl complexes, borylene complexes have attracted considerable interest both from experimental and theoretical points of view. Various methods for their preparation have been developed and ongoing studies on their reactivity have demonstrated an exciting chemistry. In particular, the nature of the metal–boron bond was subject to many structural and computational studies. This review summarizes the chemistry of transition metal borylene complexes, highlighting recent developments and emphasizing structural and electronic properties of these species.
