The title compound 1-[(C6H5)2PAuCl]-2-(C6H 5)-1,2-closo-C2B10H10 or [AuCl{(C6H5)2P(C8H 15B10)}], is the first reported derivative of 1-[(C6H5)2P]-2-(C6H 5)1,2-closo-C2B10H10. The conformation of the cage phenyl group is comparable with the parent carbaborylphosphine, however, the (C6H5)2PAuCl substituent is less tilted from an idealized radial position on C1 due to a balance between two opposing sets of intramolecular forces. The P - Au - Cl fragment adopts the expected linear geometry.
