Abstract

Reaction of Na2[7,9-C2B10H12] or its C-dimethyl analogue with SnCl2 in THF affords 4,1,6-closo-SnC2B10H12 or 1,6-Me2-4,1,6-closo-SnC2B10H10 respectively, the first 13-vertex metallacarboranes involving p-block metals; spectroscopic, structural and theoretical studies, including an analysis of fluctionality in solution, are reported.
