The methods of synthesis of a- and b-haloalkylboranes, including chloration of alkylboronic acid esters, additive bromation and chloration of esters of vinyl- and alkenylboronic acids, addition of bromine to trivinylborazines have been considered.

The reactions of radical addition of polyhaloidmethanes to vinylboranes, a- and b-unsaturated boronic esters, B-vinyl-B-arylboronic esters, B-trivinyl-B-triarylborazines were discussed. The hydroboration of acetylenic halogenides of dicycloalkylboranes, which led to halocontaining derivatives of dialkylvinylborane was separately considered. The examples of hydroboration of halogenides of allyl and vinyl types are presented. The reaction of dienic synthesis, which takes place between vinylchloroboranes or vinylboronic esters and tetra- or hexachlorocyclopentadienes has been discussed.

The reaction of alkenes and allenes with boron tribromide was described. The Markovnikov and non-Markovnikov hydrobromation of boron vinylderivatives has been envisaged. The approaches to the synthesis of perfluoroalkylboranes on the base of hydroboration of perfluoroalkenes have been discussed. The methods of the synthesis of boronates, containing halogetaryl substituents, have been performed. The reactions of hydroboration of halogenides of allylic and propargylic types by 9-borabicyclononane have been shown. The regio- and stereoselectivity of the reaction has been discussed. The examples of the synthesis of boranes of the norbornene type were presented. The reaction of boroallylilation of allyl- and propargylhalogenides leading to the derivatives of 3-bora-bicyclo[3,3,1]-nonane has been discussed.

Some directions of using of haloidalkylboranes in the synthesis have been discussed. The examples of nucleophilic substitution leading to oxyalkyl- and azidoalkylboranes have been presented. The route of obtaining of alcohols from a-haloidalkylboranes has been shown. The general scheme of synthesis of a-aminoboronic acids was perfomed. The general approach to the synthesis of allenes on the base of hydroboration products of propargyl halogenides has been discussed. The schemes of synthesis of 1,4-disubstituted-1,2,3-butatrienes are presented. The wide using reaction of introducing of vinylic group into substituent, bonding with boron atom in molecules of dialkylvinylboranes, was discussed. The reactions of new C-C bonds formation, based on the action of iodine on the alkylvinylboronates leading to 1,3-dienes and alkylidencyclanes have been shown. The route of the synthesis of cyclopropanes from b-haloidalkylboranes has been discussed.
