Synthesis, structure, properties, and reactivity of verdazyls based on formazans, as well as of metalverdazyl complexes, formazanate BR2-complexes (R = F, H, Ph), and other Group 13 and 14 formazanate complexes, were considered. Special attention was focused on the study of redox-active formazanate ligands.
