Abstract:

The crystal and molecular structure of 2,6-Di-eta-cyclopentadienyloctahydro-1, 10-dicarba-2, 6-dicobalta-closo-decaborane,2,6-eta-C5H52-2,6-Co2-1, 10-C2B6H8, has been determined at -150C by single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods. The molecule crystallizes as green slabs in the monoclinic space group C2c with eight molecules per unit cell. The polyhedral framework is a distorted bicapped square antiprism with carbons at the caps and one cobalt in each square face. The cobalt atoms are joined by a 2.489 A bond, the first confirmed metal-metal bond in a bimetallocarborane. Modified author abstract
