The novel eighteen-vertex macropolyhedral dithiaborane anion [S2B16H17](-) 1 has been obtained as its [tmndH](+) salt from the reaction of [S2B17H17] 2 and tmnd in solution in the presence of [RhCl2(eta(5)-C5Me5)](2). It has two cluster skeletal electrons more than the three previously reported eighteen-vertex dithiaborane {S2B16} species n-[S2B16H16], n-[S2B16H15](-) and iso-[S2B16H16], and the anion consists structurally of an arachno {SB9} and a nido {B-9} cluster unit fused with two boron atoms in common, and with an endo-to-exo sulfur bridge that also links the two subclusters together.
