Abstract

The carbaboranes closo-2,4-R2-2,4-C2B 5H5 (R = H or Me) react with [Pt2(μ-cod) (PEt3)4] (cod = cyclo-octa-1,5-diene) to afford the carbaplatinaboranes 4,4-(Et3P)2-1,7-R2-1,4,7- CPtCB5H5 and 1,1-(Et3P)2-6,6- (Et3P)2-4,5-Me2-1,4,5,6-PtC2PtB 5H5; the molecular structures of the two methyl derivatives have been established by X-ray diffraction.
