Decomposition of nitrogen-hydrogen complexes of decaborane(12). 2. An IR study of the mechanism of decomposition of decaborane(12) diammoniate

  • 57 Accesses

Conclusions

  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.
