The potassium salts of the new S2N-heteroscorpionate ligand hydrobis(methimazolyl)(3,5-dimethylpyrazolyl)borate [HB(mt)2(pz3,5-Me)] and its known analogue hydrobis(methimazolyl)(pyrazolyl)borate [HB(mt)2(pz)] (prepared from KTp′ or KTp and methimazole, Hmt), and the adduct KTp·Hmt have polymeric structures in the solid state (the first a ladder and the other two chains). The iridaboratranes [IrHLL′{B(mt)2X}] (X = pz3,5-Me or pz), prepared from the heteroscorpionate anion and [{Ir(cod)(μ-Cl)}2] (LL′ = cod), subsequent carbonylation [LL′ = (CO)2] and then reaction with phosphine [LL′ = (CO)(PR3), R = Ph or Cy], have a pendant pyrazolyl ring and a bicyclo-[3.3.0] cage formed by an S2-bound B(mt)2 fragment. The binuclear species [(cod)HIr{μ-B(mt)3}IrCl(cod)], the only isolated product of the reaction of KTm with [{Ir(cod)(μ-Cl)}2], also has an S2-bound iridaboratrane unit but with the third mt ring linked to square planar iridium(I).
