Crystal structures of 1:1 adducts of diborane(4) compounds and the electron acceptors TCNQ and TCNE, namely B2(1,2-E2C6H4) 2·TCNQ (E = O or S) and B2(1,2-E2C6H4)2·TCNE (E = O or S), have been found to show predominantly two-dimensional heteromolecular packing motifs with a variety of interlayer packings.
