Preparation of the [1-H3B-1,2-C2B10H11]- anion in various ways is reported. The species is a substituted derivative of the [BH4]- anion and can be employed for obtaining a family of the 1-L-H2B-1,2-C2B10H11 (L = (CH3)2S, C5H5N, (CH3)3N, and (C2H5)3N base adducts. Constitution of all compounds isolated was established primarily on the basis of their 1H, 11B, and 13C NMR spectra.
