Perfect symmetry: Photoelectron spectroscopy and theoretical calculations show that the B8 and B9 rings are stabilized by the metal atoms in Co©B8 and Ru©B9, which possess D8h and D9h symmetry, respectively (see picture). The bonding between the metal atom and the boron ring is described by six delocalized σ electrons and six delocalized π electrons, which result in double aromaticity.
