tin, boron and silicium amongst others are used a lot in organic chemistry

you should state a more precise description than "involved in organic chemistry."

I missed carbon :( I fail

There are so many elements missing from this list, it is not even worth listing them all. Most main group elements, and most transition elements, and some lanthanides and actindes make covalent bonds to carbon. For example, Grignard reagents, which have a carbon covalently bound to a magnesium, are one of the first things you learn in an organic chemistry class.

yes, but is a Gringard reagent covalently bonded to the Carbon atom? Organometallic compounds like Gringard and Gillman reagents are polar ionic bonded, the answers here are for atoms that are specifically covalently bonded to the carbon atom meaning that there is less than a 2 degree of electro-negativity difference.

Believe me, boron belongs on this list...if for no other reason than to justify the last two years of pain and suffering boron-carbon bonds have inflicted upon my life.

I've been in Organic Chemistry for two years and never used Selenium.

There are a lot more elements that should be on this list.. It isn't fully comprehensive.
