  • Treatment of Cs[(CF3)3BNH2] with the aminating agent H2NOSO3H in aqueous solution allowed the isolation of pure Cs[(CF3)3BH], which is stable up to 300 degrees C. Due to the strong electron-withdrawing effect of the CF3 substituents, the [(CF3)3BH]- anion behaves as a very unreactive hydride. It is stable in concentrated hydrochloric acid for many days but reacts cleanly with F2, Cl2, and Br2 to the corresponding haloborates. The molecular structure was determined by single-crystal X-ray… CONTINUE READING
