Rhodium cyclooctadiene complexes of the weakly co-ordinating carborane anion [closo-CB11H12](-). Isolation and crystal structures of [(COD)Rh(eta(2)-CB11H12)] and [(COD)Rh(THF)(2)][CB11H12]

Abstract:

Reaction of Ag[CB11H12] with [Rh(COD)Cl]2 (COD=1,4-cyclooctadiene) affords the complex [Rh(COD)(η2-CB11H12)] (2), which has been characterised by NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. The solid-state structure shows that the carborane is co-ordinated to the rhodium by two 3c-2e Rh-H-B bonds. The solution fluxional behaviour of the {Rh(COD)} fragment over the surface of the cage is discussed. The carborane ligand in 2 is displaced by THF to give the crystallographically characterised com...
