AbstractFour reaction pathways have been found in the reaction of a C, C'-linked nido-biscarborane tetraanionic salt with [Ru(p-cymene)Cl-2](2), leading to the isolation and structural characterization of redox, triple cage B-H oxidative addition, cage expansion and cage carbon extrusion products. Among these, the unprecedented cage carbon extrusion results in the formation of a new 6 pi-electron carboranyl ligand [C2B10H10](2-). The bonding interactions between this ligand and the Ru(II) center have also been discussed on the basis of DFT calculations.
