Carboranes are a class of carbon-boron molecular clusters with exceptional thermal and chemical stabilities. They are finding a variety of applications in medicine, materials, and coordination/organometallic chemistry as functional building blocks. Recently, transition metal catalyzed regioselective o-carborane B—H activation has been rapidly developed, offering a series of novel methodologies for selective cage boron functionalization. The current state of functionalization of o-carboranes to form B—B, B—N, B—O, B—S, and B—halogen bonds using transition metal-catalyzed B—H activation strategy is summarized. Some reaction mechanisms are highlighted, and the future challenges and focus of the carborane B—heteroatom bond construction are discussed.

Key words: carborane, B—H activation, transition metal catalysis, B—heteroatom bond
