Abstract. The chemistry of 1,1’-bis(ortho-carborane) has rapidly developed in recent years since a convenient method was reported for its synthesis. Here we review the recent progress in this field with main emphasis on the synthesis of 1,1’-bis(carborane)- based heterocycles and transition metal complexes as well as metallacarboranes.
