The crystal structures of the Cs+ salts of the halogenated monocarbaborane anions [closo-1-HCB9H4Br5] -, [closo-1-HCB11H5Cl6]- and [closo-1-HCB11H5Br6]- have been determined. The structures show two-dimensional extended-sheet or three-dimensional lattice structures and feature unusual distorted cuboctahedral and tetrakis hexahedral coordination geometries about Cs+. Incidental to the structural work, new convenient preparations of the precursive non-halogenated monocarbaborane anions [closo-1-HCB9H 9]- and [closo-1-HCB11H11] - are presented.
