Boron bond construction: Despite the intense synthetic interest in diboranes and the high B[BOND]B bond enthalpy, the formation of boron–boron bonds is still difficult, uncontrollable, and unpredictable. Methods for B[BOND]B multiple bonds are rarer still. These problems have witnessed some progress in recent years, and recent results are presented along with a background to the history of B[BOND]B bond synthesis. Dip=2,6-diisopropylphenyl, Dur=2,3,5,6-tetramethylphenyl.
