The field of nitrogen activation has traditionally been dominated by transition metals. However, concerns around the availability, environmental impact, and toxicity of some metals, in addition to renewed interest into the chemical reactivity of main group elements, have led chemists to investigate alternative methods of nitrogen activation. In particular, the use of boron-containing compounds has been prevalent in the activation of nitrogen-containing compounds. In this article, we aim to highlight how triarylboranes have been employed in the activation of azo-containing molecules, including diazo compounds, hydrazines, azides, and diazenes.
