Abstract

(Figure Presented) Cornering heteroboranes: The 15-vertex heteroborane 1-(p-cymene)-8,14-µ-(CH2)3-1,8,14-closo-RuC 2B12H12 has been prepared (see structure; B orange, Ru blue, C gray). The RuC2B12 polyhedron has the form of a pentacosahedron (24 triangular faces and 1 quadrilateral face). In solution at elevated temperatures the structure is in tautomeric equilibrium by a "square-diamond-square" rearrangement involving the quadrilateral face. © 2006 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
