The reaction of 13-vertex cobaltacarbonanes, eta-C5H5-CoC2B10H12, with ethanolic postassium hydroxide in the presence of cyclopentadiene and an appropriate metal salt produces new 13-vertex bimetallllocarboranes. These bimetallic products, which may contain identical or dissimilar metals, have one less boron atom than does the original monometallocarborane. The preparation, characterization and structures of these complexes are discussed. Author
