Abstract:

The base degradation followed by oxidation, of pi-C5H5Copi-3-1,2-B9C2H11 and pi-3-1,2-B9C2H112Co- has been found to effect a polyhedral contraction to give pi-C5H5Copi-1-2,4-B8C2H10 and pi-3-1,2-B9C2H11Copi-1-2,4-B8C2H10- respectively. These compounds reacted with pyridine to give the nido-metallocarborane complexes which contain a bridge hydrogen atom. Oxidation of these complexes with FeIII afforded the complexes which do not appear to contain a bridge hydrogen and presumably contain the closo-CoB8C2H9C5H5N polyhedron. Author
