The mol­ecular structure of the title compound 1-(2′,3′,5′,6′-tetra­fluoro-4′-trifluoro­methyl­phen­yl)-closo-1,2-dicarbadodeca­borane, C9H11B10F7, features an intra­molecular ortho-F⋯H2 hydrogen bond [2.11 (2) Å], which is responsible for an orientation of the hepta­fluoro­tolyl substituent in which the plane of the aryl ring nearly eclipses the C1—C2 cage connectivity.
