Platinum catalyzed sequential hydroboration of decaborane: a facile approach to poly(alkenyldecaborane) with decaborane in the mainchain

Author affiliations

Abstract

Catalytic sequential hydroboration of decaborane for the synthesis of poly(organodecaborane), with decaborane in the mainchain, is reported for the first time. Under a platinum catalytic system, poly(6-hexenyldecaborane) and poly(6-norbornenyldecaborane) are obtained with well-defined structures and a moderate yield. Thermogravimetric analysis demonstrates that the char yields are 73% and 82%, respectively.
