Abstract

original image

A simple and high-yield route to a series of tricarbollide compounds 8-R-nido-7,8,9-C3B8H11 and [8-R-nido-7,8,9-C3B8H10] (exemplified by R=Me, Ph, and 1-naphthyl) was developed. The method is based on a new type of C-insertion cross-coupling through skeletal alkylcarbonation (SAC) reactions between acyl chlorides (RCOCl) and the arachno-6,9-C2B8H14 carborane (see scheme).
