Preparation of the crystalline complex NaNH3.BH2CN6I from NMe3.BH2I and NaCN in liquid NH3 is disclosed. Structural details of this novel octahedral complex are obtained by single-crystal X-ray analysis. Evidence indicates that the complex is a valuable antiarthritic agent, since it completely inhibits bacteria-induced chronic arthritis in rats with no evidence of toxic effects. The complex also possesses analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity. Author
