Abstract

The compounds [N(CH3)4][3,3'-Co(8-(p-C6H4C2H3)-1,2-C2B9H10)(1',2'-C2B9H11)], [N(CH3)4][3,3'-Co(8-(p-C6H4CHO)-1,2-C2B9H10)(1',2'-C2B9H11)], and [N(CH3)4][3,3'-Co(8-(m-C6H4CHO)-1,2-C2B9H10)(1',2'-C2B9H11)] were synthesized using an easy methodology, in very good yields and large quantities, which are important requisites to be employed as starting reagents. They have been fully characterized by elemental analysis, IR, NMR, and MALDI-TOF-MS, and the crystal structures of [N(CH3)4][3,3'-Co(8-(p-C6H4C2H3)-1,2-C2B9H10)(1',2'-C2B9H11)] and [N(CH3)4][3,3'-Co(8-(p-C6H4CHO)-1,2-C2B9H10)(1',2'-C2B9H11)] were elucidated by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. These compounds, having terminal formyl and vinyl functional groups, are suitable platforms to involve the aromatic cobaltabisdicarbollide unit into extended π-conjugated systems. It is expected that these synthons will facilitate the applicability of metallacarboranes in a wide variety of different fields, where π-conjugated systems are needed to keep electronic communication.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 May 2014.
All research outputs
#3,038,540
of 4,507,778 outputs
Outputs from Inorganic Chemistry
#2,376
of 5,999 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#71,214
of 108,065 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Inorganic Chemistry
#206
of 340 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,507,778 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 5,999 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.1. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 108,065 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 340 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
