Abstract

[PhCH2NMe3]2(2+).[Pd(B10H12)2]2-.2CH3CN, M(r) = 729.39, triclinic, P1BAR, a = 9.2094 (18), b = 10.772 (3), c = 11.3707 (23) angstrom, alpha = 67.721 (21), beta = 83.394 (16), gamma = 78.801 (21)degrees, V = 1022.8 angstrom3, Z = 1, D(x) = 1.184 Mg m-3, Mo K-alpha, lambda = 0.71069 angstrom, mu = 0.470 mm-1, F(000) = 380, T = 291 (1) K, R = 0.0265 for 5850 independent observed reflections. The palladaborane anion has effective C2h molecular symmetry (C(i) imposed). The {B-10} fragment has a geometry close to intermediate between that of nido-{B10H12}2- and arachno-{B10H12}4-, and the verticity of the Pd atom is 39.4%.
