Among the most significant advances in organic synthesis over the past few decades are those associated with the development of transition metal complexes for their use as catalysts in organic reactions. The discovery that transition metals can also be used to catalyze the addition of BH bonds to unsaturated substrates has provided the synthetic chemist with another valuable tool. This review examines recent advances in the field of catalyzed hydroborations and their applications in organic synthesis.
