The mononuclear 16-electron dithio-o-carboranylcobalt(III) complex CpCo(S2C2B10H10) (2) was obtained by the reaction of CpCo(CO)I2 with dilithium dithio-o-carborane, Li2[S2C2B10H10] (1). Complex 2 reacts with a variety of substrates such as CpCo(C2H2)2, alkynes, and a diazoalkane, generating a new class of dithio-o-carboranylcobalt(III) compounds incorporating a CpCo unit and alkene and alkylidene ligands.
