Abstract

The title compound, 9-iodo-1,2-diphenyl-1,2-dicarba-closododecaborane(9), C14H19B10I, has the expected pseudoicosahedral cluster geometry, with a cage C-C distance of 1.724 (4) Å, comparable to that in the non-iodinated parent. However, the twist angles, ?, of the phenyl rings are 2.1 (6) and 27.6 (5)°, the latter being unusually large.
