Copper‐catalyzed borylative multicomponent reactions (MCRs) involving olefins and C–N electrophiles are a powerful tool to rapidly build up molecular complexity. The products from these reactions contain multiple functionalities, such as amino, cyano and boronate groups, that are ubiquitous in medicinal and process chemistry programs. Copper‐catalyzed MCRs are particularly attractive because they use a relatively abundant and non‐toxic catalyst to selectively deliver high‐value products from simple feedstocks such as olefins. In this Minireview, we explore this rapidly emerging field and survey the borylative union of allenes, dienes, styrenes and other olefins, with imines, nitriles and related C–N electrophiles.
