Heard, Matthew J., Stefkova, Katarina, van Ingen, Yara and Melen, Rebecca L. ORCID: 2021. Frustrated Lewis pairs in organic synthesis. Reference Module in Chemistry, Molecular Sciences and Chemical Engineering, Elsevier, (10.1016/B978-0-12-820206-7.00041-X)

In 2006, Stephan defined frustrated Lewis pairs and, over the last 15 years, these systems have developed from chemical novelties to increasingly commonplace catalysts, with many research groups developing their capabilities to surpass those of transition metal catalysts. This book article aims to discuss the catalytic uses of frustrated Lewis pairs focusing on their application within organic synthesis, with a discussion on hydrogenation catalysis, air and moisture stable FLPs, enantioselective FLPs, 1,2-hydrofunctionalization catalysis, cyclization catalysis, and a brief look at the recent use of FLPs within radical chemistry.
