Recent Advances in the Synthesis and Applications of Organoborane Polymers

Part of the Topics in Organometallic Chemistry book series (TOPORGAN, volume 49)


Recent advances in the synthesis of organoborane polymers are reviewed in this chapter. The last decade has witnessed new approaches for the direct polymerization of functional borane monomers as well as the use of innovative polymer modification techniques. Powerful new methods that allow for positioning of functional borane moieties at well-defined positions in the polymer chain have also been developed. The resulting organoborane polymers have been investigated as luminescent and electro-active materials, electrolytes for batteries, supported Lewis acid catalysts, sensors for anions and biologically relevant molecules, building blocks of stimuli-responsive and dynamic (supramolecular) materials, and for biomedical applications.
