In comparison with a protic cage C—H bond, cage B—H is hydridic and generally less polar, with a bond dissociation energy of ca. These features make B—H activation quite different from that of the C—H bond. In addition, selectivity among ten very similar BH vertices in o -carborane is challenging yet crucial to the effective construction of carborane-based functional molecules. To address these issues, a brand new strategy of cage B—H nucleophilic substitution has recently been presented and developed for straightforward and regioselective cage B—H functionalization.
