Abstract

The reactions of R4NB3Hg (R=Me, Et, or Bu) with Al(BH4)3 at 20°C afforded R4N[Al(BH4)4] and were accompanied by liberation of tetraborane(10) as the major product. The yield of B4H10 increased in going from R=Me to R=Bu.

Key words

octahydrotriborate aluminum tetrahydroborate diborane(6) tetraborane(10) pentaborane(9) Lewis acid
