Abstract

While geometries of 12- and 13-vertex dicarbaborane (carborane) radicals with rare 2n+3 skeletal electrons (SEs) have been determined elsewhere, the geometries of the 11-vertex dicarbaborane monoanion radicals with 2n+3 SEs are established here for the first time by computations in agreement with observed electrochemical and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy data.
