Organoboron compounds are wildly used in organic synthesis, materials science, life and health science, etc. The development of synthetic methodologies of organoborons has therefore gained intense attention nowadays. Typically, Bis(pinacolato)diboron (B2Pin2), pinacolborane (HBpin) and catecholatoborane (HBCat) are predominantly used as boron reagents in catalytic C-B bond forming reactions. Different from the above traditional boron reagents, borane adducts with strong Lewis bases, such as amines, phosphines, and N-heterocyclic carbenes, are promising boron reagents because of their readily accessibility, relatively high stability, and easy operation. Moreover, the different chemical properties of these stable borane adducts towards the traditional boron reagents provide possibilities for development of new C-B bond formation reactions. The applications of the stable borane adducts as terminal boron reagents in hydroboration of alkenes or alkynes, C-H bond borylation, carbene insertion into B-H bonds, cascade cyclization initiated by boryl radicals and substitutions, which provide new methods for the preparation of organoborons are reviewed in this paper.

Key words: stable borane adduct, hydroboration, C—H bond borylation, B—H bond insertion, boryl radical
