o-Carboranes, as well as its derivative o-carborynes, can react with a variety of unsaturated compounds through cycloadditions and transform into various functionalized carboranes which have potential applications in many an area such as boron neutron capture therapy, catalytic systhesis and drug design. Recently, people have made remarkable achievements in the functionalization of o-carboranes and o-carborynes, especially in aspects of reaction condition optimization, selectivity controlling and reaction mechanism exploration. The most recent experimental achievements in the area of cycloaddition between o-carboranes and unsaturated compounds, alkenes, polycyclic or heterocyclic aromatics, in the past ten years are summarized. The reaction mechanisms and corresponding computational findings of o-carboryne-involved [2+2+2],[2+2+1],[2+2],[3+2],[4+2] and[5+2] cycloadditions are summarized and emphasized. Moreover, the prospects of future development in this area are discussed in the end.
