Abstract

The title molecule, C22H30B20F4, has a crystallographically imposed inversion centre. The twist angle (?) of the phenyl ring is 15.6 (3)°, and that of the haloaryl ring is 3.7 (3)°. These low values are presumably a consequence of the mutual steric crowding of the rings. The Ccage - Ccage distance is 1.730 (3) Å, in good agreement with that found in similar molecules.
