Some reactions of 1-epoxyisopropyl-o-carborane
When 1-epoxyisopropyl-o-carborane is treated with hydrogen halide acids or with alcohols in the presence of boron trifluoride the oxide ring is opened on the side of the primary carbon atom of the epoxy group.
When 1-epoxyisopropyl-o-carborane is treated with weakly basic nucleophilic reagents the oxide ring is also opened on the side of the primary carbon atom of the epoxy group. Treatment with strongly basic nucleophilic reagents leads to cleavage of the epoxy group and the formation of o-carborane.
