Suning Wang from Queen’s University, Canada, looks at how electron accepting triarylboranes can be used in optoelectronic applications in this Dalton Transactions Perspective article.
Wang and her PhD student, Zachary Hudson, discuss the role of boron, and the photophysical properties of metal-containing triarylboranes. They go on to review the recent research, looking at triarylboron-containing complexes in OLEDs and as anion sensors, as well their use in MOFs, zinc sensors and as vapochromic materials to detect VOCs.
