Abstract

Isotopically labeled materials have proven to be invaluable in chemical, medical, and biological research. Organoboranes are beginning to play a significant role in the synthesis of medically important materials which contain both stable and short-lived isotopes. The organic compounds of boron possess characteristics which make them ideal intermediates in radiopharmaceutical pathways; these include the facts that boron reactions tolerate a wide variety of physiologically active functionality and that the reactions proceed rapidly and in high yields. Boranes have found important applications in modern medical imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
