Abstract

Recent advances in the chemistry of pentafluorophenyl copper are discussed, including the observation of strongly luminescent adducts with pyridine, the first successfulstructural characterization of an organocopper–arene complex, and the complexationwith electron-rich transition metal complexes such as ferrocene derivatives. In addition, new applications in synthetic organometallic chemistry are discussed, which include the discovery of tin/copper exchange reactions for the preparation of organocopper compounds that are otherwise not readily accessible, and the selective transfer of the C6F5 groups to boron to form catalytically active and electronically interesting organoboron polymers.
