2014 Chemical Society Reviews  
Molecules which possess chemical bonds where a bare group-14 atom C–Pb is bonded to σ-donor ligands L or to a transition metal fragment [TM] through donor–acceptor interactions are discussed together with an analysis of the bonding situation with modern quantum chemical methods.
