HOT Article: 1-borabenzonitrile

In this HOT article, Cade and Hill describe the synthesis of a salt of the 1-borabenzonitrile anion as its tetrabutylammonium salt and a preliminary exploration of its coordination chemistry in which it behaves as neither a conventional nitrile nor an isonitrile. The authors present computational, spectroscopic and crystallographic evidence for the heterocycle and a ruthenium complex containing the anion as an “arene” ligand.
