New structural motifs in metallaborane chemistry. Synthesis, characterization, and solid-state structures of (Cp*W)(3)(mu-H)B8H8,(Cp*W)(2)B7H9, and (Cp*Re)(2)B7H7 (Cp*=eta-C5Me5)

Abstract:

Hydrogen loss from the 7 skeletal electron pair (sep) nido 2-Cp*H3WB4H8, 1 (Cp* = η-C5-Me5), the metal analogue of pentaborane (9), has been examined as a potential source of unsaturated, reactive species. Pyrolysis of 1 leads to 6 skeletal electron pair (Cp*W)2B5H9, 2 (45%), 7 sep Cp*3W3(μ-H)B8H8 3 (19%), and 7 sep (Cp*W)2B7H9) 4 (low yield), whereas photolysis gives 2 (52%) and 4 (7%). Compound 2 is known, and 3 and 4 have been spectroscopically and crystallographically characterized. Furth...
