Abstract:

Successful isolation and characterization of Me3NB4H8 revealed an aspect of the base catalysis of borane condensation, and triggered the discovery of new hypho class compounds B4H82PMe3 and B3H53PMe3. Formation of a new class klado of compound B4H64PMe3 was confirmed also. These higher class compounds are promising reagents for borane expansion. A triborane cation, B3H6PMe32, was prepared from B2H42PMe3. The diborane4 adduct can be used as a reagent for borane expansion. An attempted conversion of B5H9 to B10H14 is described. Author
