Abstract: Metal-induced B-H activation and functionalization of carboranes and mechanistic investigations will be presented. Owing to the unique s aromaticity and rigid cage structures of carboranes, some examples will be shown that carboranes are able to considerably tune photophysical properties of the known luminescent compounds. In addition, a new-type non-classical hydrogen bond B-H---π interaction will be talked.
