Very useful paper for niche applications using metallacarboranes

Covalent attachment of 1,4-dioxane to beta born of ferracarborane sandwich complexes which can be easily outfitted with many organic functional groups. Procedure worked as reported, with moderate yields of 60-70%. Higher yields were achieved at smaller scales (ca. less than 1g...
