Abstract

Large, inert, weakly basic carborane anions of the icosahedral type CHB[sub 11]R[sub 5]X[sub 6]- (R = H, Me; X = CI, Br) allow ready isolation and structural characterization of discrete salts of the solvated proton, [H(solvent)[sub x]][CHB[sub 11]lR[sub 5]X[sub 6]], (solvent = common O-atom donor).
