The base degradation of orange pi-C5H5CoIIIpi-6,7-B10C2H12 has been found to effect a polyhedral contraction reaction to give pi-C5H5CoIII-pi-2-B7CH8-1. This reaction constitutes the first reported example of a small metallocarborane formed by the removal of a carbon atom and three boron atoms from the polyhedral framework of a larger metallocarborane.
