Chemistry of diruthenium analogue of pentaborane(9) with heterocumulenes: toward novel trimetallic cubane-type clusters.


Reactions of the CS2 and CO2 heterocumulene ligands with nido-ruthenaborane cluster [1,2-(Cp*Ru)2(μ-H)2B3H7], 1, were explored (Cp* = pentamethylcyclopentadienyl). Compound 1 when treated with CS2 underwent metal-assisted hydroboration to yield arachno-ruthenaborane [(Cp*Ru)2(B3H8)(CS2H)], 2, with a dithioformato ligand attached to it. The chemistry of 2… (More)
