BH activation of carboranes induced by late transition metals

BH activation of carboranes induced by late transition metals
The selective and straightforward functionalization of BH bonds in carboranes, producing new CB bonds or metallacarboranes, has drawn increasing interest in the field of carborane chemistry. Most of the work in this area has been performed using naked transition metal species as catalysts and half-sandwich metal fragments as building blocks for constructing frameworks. The focus of this review is on recent developments in the area of BH activation in carboranes, giving rise to CB coupling, transformation of 16e systems into stable 18e systems, the formation of metal–metal bonds, and the assembly of organometallic frameworks. The two main approaches are toward the functionalization of BH bonds for forming BX (X=C, O, I) bonds and assembling organometallic frameworks based on half-sandwich metal fragments.
