The thermal decomposition of ArN2pi-7,8-B9C2H112Co, Ar C6H5 of C6H4CH3 in aromatic solvents has been investigated and the new complexes CH34Npi-7,8-B9C2H102C6H4Co and CH34Npi-7,8-B9C2H102C6H3CH3Co isolated. The aryl group is thought to occupy a bridging position between two B9C2H10 moieties in each complex and is shown to be derived from the solvent which constitutes the reaction medium. A possible mechanism for the formation of these compounds is discussed and evidence for the presence of radical intermediates during the reaction is presented. Author
