Abstract : Treatment of 2,3-dicarbahexaborane(8) with sodium hydride in diglyme results in the liberation of one mole of H2 and the formation of 2,3-C2B4H7(-) ion. Protonation of the ion with HCl or DCl gives 2,3-dicarbahexaborane(8) and a deuterio derivative, respectively. Bridge deuteration is indicated from B-11 and H-1 n.m.r. and infrared data. An exchange between deuteriodiborane and 2,3-dicarbahexaborane(8) at 100 C results in protium-deuterium exchange in the 4,5,6 terminal positions. (Author)
