This article reviews recent advances in the synthesis of polar functional polymers via the mediation of organoborane monomers and polymers. Both direct polymerization and post‐polymerization functionalization processes are described. Organoborane‐assisted Ziegler–Natta, metathesis, and hydroboration (haloboration) polymerizations are presented. Moreover, the special problems and opportunities of polymer modification of olefin containing homo and copolymers by organoboranes are discussed.
