Download Article:
(PDF 267.1 kb)
N-Hetereocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes of boranes are stable compounds that can be used as co-initiators for the type II photopolymerization of acrylates. The present account summarizes this new development for polymerization and boron chemistry. In particular, NHC-boranes are air- and water-tolerant, which enhances the practicality of the photopolymerizations.
