The authors studied the structures and molecular properties of new carborane systems during the time period of this grant. They determined the geometrical shapes, conformations, and accurate molecular structure of new families of carboranes which had recently been synthesized. Also initiated was the study of tautomerism of the bridge hydrogens to determine the instantaneous structures of boron systems such as hexaborane, B6H10 octaborane12, B8H12 and dicarbaoctaborane10, C2B6H10. Experimental studies were often parallelled with CNDO calculations.
