In recent years, boron-containing macrocycles have received considerable research interest. This review summarizes the reported examples of boron macrocycles containing alkyl/aryl borane units, B-O bonds, and B-N bonds. The synthesis and structure of these macrocyclic compounds are highlighted. Moreover, further applications of these boron-containing macrocycles in anion sensing, host-guest interactions, and supramolecular catalysis are briefly introduced. © 2023 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
