Frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs)" chemistry has grown rapidly during the last decade and provided a new strategy for the activation of a variety of small molecules, such as hydrogen, olefins, alkynes, carbon dioxide, tetrahydrofuran and hydrosilane etc. The activations of these molecules have probided a new method in the utility of main group element. The structure and reactivity of FLPs are reviewed and the recent progress in activation of small molecules promoted by frustrated Lewis pairs is introduced.
