Convenient C-alkylation of the [HCB11Cl11]- carborane anion. Academic Article uri icon


  • A method for C-alkylation of [HCB(11)Cl(11)](-) anions using potassium tert-butoxide and alkyl iodides in tert-butanol is presented. Trimethylammonium salts of the corresponding C-alkylated derivatives are easily isolated and obtained in good yields.
