A CpCo-induced hydrogen migration and elimination in 1 gives rise to the olive-green, paramagnetic triple-decker complex 2 with the new 1,3,5-triboratabenzene bridging ligand. The B3C3 ring is planar and the BC distances almost the same length. Compound 2 may be easily oxidized with AgBF4 to the diamagnetic 2+BF.
