Abstract

Treatment of M[Co(C2B9H11)2], M = Na or K, with [2.2.2]cryptand and 5,7,12,14-tetramethyldibenzo[b,i]-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecinenickel(II) results in a 1:1:1 complex, assembled with the cobalticarborane anion snugly residing in the phenyl lined face of the Ni(II) macrocycle through C-H···N and C-H···π interactions, with the ensuing [M⊂[2.2.2]cryptand]+ supercation residing in the smaller methyl faced cavity of the macrocycle.
