Abstract

[(η<sup>6</sup>-C<sub>6</sub>Me<sub>6</sub>)RuOB<sub>9</sub>H<sub>13</sub>], obtained in trace yield from the reaction between [{RuCl<sub>2</sub>(η<sup>6</sup>-C<sub>6</sub>Me<sub>6</sub>)}<sub>2</sub>] and the [<i>arachno</i>-B<sub>6</sub>H<sub>11</sub>]<sup>-</sup> anion, has been shown by DFT calculations of structure and of boron-atom nuclear shielding to be of an <i>arachno</i> eleven-vertex cluster geometry that is derived by the removal of adjacent six-connected and five-connected vertices from a closed thirteen-vertex deltahedral 1:6:5:1 stack. The results lead to further considerations in oxaborane chemistry, which are explored and consolidated by calculation. Additional products from the reaction include [4-(η<sup>6</sup>-C<sub>6</sub>Me<sub>6</sub>)-<i>n-arachno</i>-4-RuB<sub>8</sub>H<sub>14</sub>], also substantiated by DFT calculations, and several four-, five-, six-, nine- and ten-vertex ruthenaboranes that are either known compounds or simple variants of known compounds. <p>
