Despite the extensive range of investigations on boronic acids (R-B(OH) 2 ), some aspects of their reactivity still need to be explored. This is the case for the coordination chemistry of boronate anions (R-B(OH) 3 ), which has only recently been started to be studied. The purpose of this review is to summarize some of the key features of boronate ligands (and of their cyclic derivatives, benzoxaborolates) in materials: (i) coordination properties; (ii) spectroscopic signatures; and (iii) emerging applications.
