The syntheses and solid-state structures of K(BH2(RCN4)2)(18-crown-6) (R = H, Me, NMe2, and NiPr2) are described. Complexes where R = H and Me have B−N bonds to N1 of the tetrazolyl groups and form one-dimensional polymers, whereas those with R = NMe2 and NiPr2 possess isomeric B−N bonds to N2 of the tetrazolyl moieties and adopt chelating κ3-N,N′,H-coordination modes to the potassium ion.
