Abstract:

The hydrolysis of pentaborane-9 in the vapor phase was carried out at 85 C and 150 C. The reactions carried out at 150 C were at initial pentaborane conce5trations in a ratio of 10 to l with a constant water concentration. Since these reaction conditions gave initial rate constants in a ratio of l0 to l, it was concluded that the vapor phase hydrolysis of pentaborane was initially first order in respect to pentaborane concentration.
