The dianion of dicarbadodecaborane (14) is capable of donating electrons to such electron acceptors as p-quinone, benzophenone, fluorenone, and nitrobenzene, giving o-carborane and the corresponding anion radicals of the electron acceptors.
There is a transfer of electrons from the dianion of dicarbadodecaborane (14) to substituted o-carborane (1,2-diphenyl-o-carborane, 1-vinyl-o-carborane, and 1-phenyl-o-carborane).
The dianion of dicarbadodecaborane (14) reduces the C-Br bond in bromoform and carbon tetrabromide.
