Macropolyhedral boron-containing cluster chemistry. Cluster opening and B-frame rearrangement in the reaction of B16H20 with [{(IrCl2(η5-C5Me5)} 2]. Synchrotron X-ray structures of [(η5-C 5Me5)2Ir2B16H 17Cl]

Lookup NU author(s): Emeritus Professor Bill CleggORCiD



Products from the reaction of + nido ten-vertex: nido eight-vertex, B 16H20 1 with [{(IrCl2(η5-C 5Me5)}2] and tmnd show unanticipated rearrangement of the starting {B16} skeleton, as exhibited by + nido ten-vertex: nido ten-vertex, [(η5-C5Me 5)2Ir2B16H17Cl] 2 which has a {B2} edge conjunction and by + nido ten-vertex: nido eleven-vertex, [(η5-C5Me5) 2Ir2B16H15Cl] 3 which has a {B 3} face conjunction. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2006.
