This review aims to highlight recent advances in the emerging field of boron-containing polymers as precursors for nanostructured materials. Boron compounds display highly interesting physical and chemical properties, which are of great potential benefit in the field of materials science. Specifically, combination of the unique characteristics of boron-containing functional groups with the nano-size regime of dendritic structures and the self-assembly of polymers of well-defined architectures, such as telechelic polymers and block copolymers, allows scientists to develop next generation materials for sensing, electronic devices, catalysis, biomedical applications, etc.
