Abstract

A single-crystal X-ray diffraction study of the species 2-carbonyl2-hydrido-trans-2,2-bis(triphenylphosphine)-2-osma-arachno-tetraborane confirms the structure as a tetraborane(10) butterfly with a trans-[(CO)H(PPh3)2Os] group replacing a BH2 group at a wing-tip or 2-position. It is compared with the previously reported ruthenaborane analogue (CO)H(PPh3)2-arachno-RuB3H8.
