  1. 1.

    IR spectra for decaborane(12) diammoniate, and the products obtained at various stages in its decomposition, have been analyzed and interpreted.

  2. 2.

    The decomposition of decaborane(12) diammoniate probably proceeds through formation of a covalent B-N bond from a donor-acceptor B ← N bond.
