Abstract

Rhodadecaborane [6-(η5-C5Me5)-nido-6-RhB9H13] (1) was found to be able to catalyze the [2+2+2] cycloaddition of a series of terminal and internal alkynes to yield mixtures of 1,2,4- and 1,3,5-substituted benzene. The reactivity of compound 1 with alkynes demonstrates that decaborane based metallaborane can be used as the catalyst for [2+2+2] cycloaddition of alkynes. All compounds are characterized by NMR spectroscopy and MS spectrometry methods.
