Abstract

Two compounds containing planar six-membered B4O2 rings have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray crystallography, namely [B4O2(OH)4] · [NH2Me2][Cl] and [B4O2(dab)2] (dab = 1,4-But-1,4-diazabutadiene), the former compound providing a model for one possible structure of boron monoxide. {BO}X.
