Abstract

Reduction of 1,12-closo-C2B10H12 or its C,C-dimethyl analogue with sodium in liquid ammonia followed by metallation with {CpCo}2+, {(arene)Ru}2+ or {(dppe)Ni}2+ fragments affords the first examples of 4,1,10-MC2B10 species; thermolysis of these yields the appropriate 4,1,12-MC2B10 isomers, unavailable for (arene)Ru metallacarboranes by similar thermolysis of known 4,1,6-MC2B10 compounds.
