Abstract

The prospects for developing useful applications based on the chemistry of transition metal complexes of <i>nido</i>-2,3-RR'C<sub>2</sub>B<sub>4</sub>H<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> and related small carborane ligands are reviewed, with primary emphasis on areas where their utility has been demonstrated in practice. Special attention is directed to the properties of small 6- and 7-vertex MC<sub>2</sub>B<sub>3</sub> and MC<sub>2</sub>B<sub>4</sub> clusters that distinguish them from their icosahedral metallacarborane congeners, and from structurally related metallocene sandwiches. A review with 43 references. <p>
