There has been great interest in metal–borane complexes following the discovery of metallaboratrane complexes in 1999. These complexes contain unusual Z-type (σ-acceptor) coordination of borane functional groups and have been shown to provide unexpected coordination geometries and properties for a transition metal in a particular oxidation state. Additionally, such ligands exhibit unusually high trans influences only in certain geometries. Herein, a simple qualitative description, based on crystal field theory arguments, is presented for the explanation of the geometries and atypical trans labilisations observed.
