Abstract

Symmetric 4,5,2,3-M2C2B9 13-vertex bimetallacarboranes of cobalt and ruthenium with 14 skeletal electron pairs are afforded by reduction and metallation of 3,1,2-MC2B9 icosahedra; the symmetric species can be converted to their asymmetric 4,5,1,6-M2C2B9 isomers by heat, but an easier route is by thermolysis of the reduced species before metallation.
