Abstract

Fused double-cluster [(5-C5Me5)IrB18H18(PH2Ph)]8, from syn-[(5-C5Me5)IrB18H20] 1 and PH2Ph, retains the three-atoms-in-common cluster fusion intimacy of 1, in contrast to [(5-C5Me5)HIrB18H19(PHPh2)]6, from PHPh2 with 1, which exhibits an opening to a two atoms-in-common cluster fusion intimacy. Compound 8 forms via spontaneous dihydrogen loss from its precursor [(5-C5Me5)HIrB18H19(PH2Ph)]7, which has two-atoms-in-common cluster-fusion intimacy and is structurally analogous to 6.
