Abstract

Reaction of bis(triethylphosphine)platinum and pentakis(t-butyl isocyanide)ruthenium with dicarba-nido-hexaboranes(8): Molecular structures of [nido-μ4,5-{trans-(Et3P)2Pt(H)} -μ5,6-H-2,3-C2B4H6], [closo-1,1-(Et3P)2-2,3-Me2-1,2,3-PtC 2B4H4], and [RuH(ButNC) 5]+ [nido-2,3-Me2-2,3-C2B 4H5]- Reaction of [Pt(PEt3)2] with nido-2,3-C 2B4H8 or nido-2,3-Me2-2,3-C 2B4H6 affords, respectively, [nido-μ4,5-{trans-(Et3P)2Pt(H)} -μ5,6-H-2,3-C2B4H6] and [nido-μ4,5-{trans-(Et3P)2Pt(H)} -μ5,6-H-2,3-Me2-2,3-C2B4H 4], which on pyrolysis yield closo-platinacarbaboranes with nonadjacent and adjacent carbon atoms respectively; in contrast [Ru(Bu tNC)5] reacts with nido-2,3-Me2-2,3-C 2B4H6 to give[RuH(ButNC) 5]+[nido-2,3-Me2-2,3-C2B 4H5]-.
