Reduction of B8C2H10CoC5H5 by sodium naphthalide in tetrahydrofuran in the presence of NaC5H5- and CoC2 yield a complex B8C2H10CoC5H52. The compound was characterized by 1H and 11B nmr, mass spectra, and elemental analysis. Structures consistent with the nmr data are discussed in which the two CoIII atoms and the B8C2H104-ion complete an icosahedron. Author
