Ten new salts that pair triazolium and imidazolium cations with closo-icosahedral anions [B(12)H(12)](2-) and [CB(11)H(12)](-) were synthesized in water solvent using an open-air, benchtop method. These unreported [Heterocyclium](2)[B(12)H(12)] and [Heterocyclium][CB(11)H(12)] salts extend reports of [Imidazolium][CB(11)H(12)] and [Pyridinium][CB(11)H(12)](More)
Two efficient processes for the synthesis of 12 relatively water-soluble binary triazolium and the first tetrazolium borane [B12H12] and carborane [CB11H12] salts by a one-step, open-air metathesis reaction have been developed. First, a combination of exhaustive trituration of the two solid reactant salts with refluxing anhydrous acetonitrile followed by(More)
Thirteen bridged triazolium and imidazolium dicationic salts, which uniquely pair closo-icosahedral perfluoroborane [B(12)F(12)](2-), borane [B(12)H(12)](2-), or carborane [CB(11)H(12)](-) anionic species with unsaturated bridged heterocyclium dications, were synthesized using an aqueous benchtop method. This considerably extends the scope of a reported(More)
