Abstract:

Controlled synthetic routes to new boron hydrides, carboranes, and metal-carborane complexes have been developed and a number of structurally novel species have been prepared and characterized. The oxidative fusion method for synthesis of boranes and carboranes has been further extended and its mechanism explored. The chemistry of small 7-vertex metallacarboranes having reactive metal centers has been examined. Practical routes to metalarene-carborane sandwich complexes have been developed. Keywords Boron Arene-metal complex Iron-carborane complex Cobalt-carborane complex Nickel-carborane complex Oxidative fusion.
