1,6-Bis(triphenylphosphino)-closo-decaborane is substituted at an apical and an equatorial position of the closo-decaborane framework by triphenylphosphine groups with B-P bond lengths of 1.879 (6) and 1.925 (6) Å.

Cycloaddition of (Z)-1,1,2,5,5,5-hexafluoro-4-phenyl-3-trifluoromethyl-1,3-pentadiene with pyridine gave the (1S,9aR) racemate as the major product and the (1S,9aS) racemate as the minor product, as determined by the crystal structures of the title compounds.

The structure of α-(AlMnSi) is reproduced by the connection of two large atom clusters with icosahedral symmetry (a Mackay icosahedron and a double-Mackay icosahedron). Si and Mn atoms are proposed to constitute icosahedral arrangements in the atom clusters.

Special and virtual issues

Acta Crystallographica Section C is planning special issues on

The Structural Chemistry of Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Catalysts

NMR Crystallography.

Full details are available on the special issues page.

The latest virtual issue, featuring Coordination polymers and with an introduction by Len Barbour, was published in July 2014.
