Abstract

Reaction of [Pt 2 (μ,-cyclo-octa-1,5-diene)(PEt3)4] with 5,6-dicarba-nido-decaborane affords 9-H-9,9-(Et3P)210,11-H-7,8,9-C2PtB8H10, which on pyrolysis (100 °C) loses H2 and forms 9-H-9,10-(Et3P)2-7,8,9-C2PtB8H9 ; the structures of these compounds have been determined by X-ray crystallography.
