Abstract : The amine chemistry of 4,5-dicarba-nido-hexaborane(8), 4,5-C2B4H8, and its C-methyl derivatives has been examined. Both 4,5-C2B4H8 and 4-CH3-4,5-C2B4H7 from adducts with trimethylamine, but 4,5-(CH3)2-4,5-C2B4H6 is relatively inert. 4,5-Dicarbahexaborane(8) and its dimethyl derivative form 1:4 addition compounds with dimethylamine. The adducts decompose on heating to form dimethylaminoborane, bis-dimethylaminoborane and hydrogen. The non-volatile adducts of their thermal decomposition residues form dimethylaminodiborane but very little hydrogen on treatment with diborane. (Author)
