α-Cyanocarbanion complexes feature nitrile ligands containing deprotonated α-carbon atoms. This short review will focus on the various synthetic methods employed to prepare these complexes, the different binding modes they exhibit and their applications to the synthesis of alkylnitriles including β-hydroxyand β-aminonitriles, the formation of unique coupling products and as key intermediates in the reaction of acrylonitrile with various substrates in hydrophosphination and copolymerisation reactions.
