Cover Picture (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. Engl. 21/1996)

35_21/1996The cover picture shows a computer-generated space-filling representation of the product of photochemical chlorination of decamethyl-1,12-dicarba-closo-dodecaborane(12), decakis(dichloromethyl)-1,12-dicarba-closo-dodecaborane(12). The semitransparent Cl atoms (yellow) allow the visualization of the underlying and camouflaged icosahedral 1,12-dicarba-closo-dodecaborane framework, in which B is red, H is white, and C is gray. The CH vertices are buried in an array of five axially oriented Cl atoms arising from nearby CHCl2 substituents. Apparent hydrocarbons of the type described here by M. F. Hawthorne et al. on p. 2536 ff. constitute a new class of carborane derivatives replete with unique chemistry and applications. The picture was produced by Darren M. Ricciardi, Imperative Images, Aurora, CO, USA, using the program Lightwave 3D by NEWTEK.
