In most cases, borylenes containing boron (I) are unstable. In this article, we proceed from the electron configuration of borylene and review the common methods of stabilizing this category of compounds through a series of borylenes in literature. In addition, the article briefly introduces the metallic borylenes and non-metallic borylenes and their properties. Some of these properties have been applied in nitrogen fixation.

Key words: Borylene compound, Main group element coordination, Nitrogen fixation
