Adaptable metallaboratranes: A tris- (phosphino)borane ligand stabilizes both low-valent Fe-N_2 complexes and a mid-valent imido species with a Fe≡NAr bond, thanks to its ability to shuttle between trigonal-bipyramidal and pseudotetrahedral geometries by elongation of the apical iron–boron bond (see picture)

Silver halide complexes of a borane/bis(phosphine) ligand.
Silver halide complexes of a borane/bis(phosphine) ligand have been prepared and characterized and the halide stays coordinated to Ag, with little to no Ag-B interaction.
Dinitrogen complexes of sulfur-ligated iron.
A unique class of dinitrogen complexes of iron featuring sulfur donors in the ancillary ligand is reported, contributing to a desirable class of model complexes that possess both dinitrogens and sulfur ligands in the immediate iron coordination sphere.
Donor ligands based on tricoordinate boron formed by B-H-activation of bis(phosphine)boronium salts.
The central (R3P)2HB-moiety in a palladium complex is demonstrated to be a L-type ligand, therewith completing a series of pincer-type complexes with Z, X- and L- type boron-based ligands, respectively.

Facile Insertion of Rh and Ir into a Boron-Phenyl Bond, Leading to Boryl/Bis(phosphine) PBP Pincer Complexes.
The unexpectedly facile insertion of Rh or Ir into a B-Ph bond (reversible for Rh) converts a borane/bis(phosphine) precursor into a boryl/bis(phosphine) PBP pincer ligand. Interconversions between
A CO-derived iron dicarbyne that releases olefin upon hydrogenation.
An iron diphosphineborane platform that was previously reported to facilitate a high degree of N2 functionalization is shown to effect reductive CO coupling and furnishes a structurally unprecedented iron dicarbyne complex.
A cis-divacant octahedral and mononuclear iron(IV) imide.
A rare, low-spin Fe(IV)  imide complex [(pyrr2py)Fe=NAd] (pyrr2 py(2-) = bis(pyrrolyl)pyridine; Ad = 1-adamantyl) confined to a cis-divacant octahedral geometry, was prepared by reduction of N3Ad by
Phosphine-Stabilized Borylenes and Boryl Anions as Ligands? Redox Reactivity in Boron-Based Pincer Complexes.
This work describes a series of complexes formally containing a phosphine-stabilized borylene or boryl anion, and reports a unique reactivity pattern, undergoing a reversible B-H reductive elimination concomitant with oxidation of the boron(I) center.

Structural and spectroscopic characterization of an electrophilic iron nitrido complex.
The electronic structure of this complex reveals that the a1 LUMO (formerly Fe(dz2)) is strongly stabilized by reduced antibonding interactions with the carbene sigma-donor ligands and configurational mixing (hybridization) with higher lying Fe 4s and 4p atomic orbitals.
