Grafting of Metallacarboranes onto Self-Assembled Monolayers Deposited on Silicon Wafers

Emilio José Juarez-Pérez, Michel Granier, Clara Vinas, P. Hubert Mutin, and Rosario Nunez Abstract The recent emergence of applications of carboranes as materials for nanotechnology and pharmacophores in drug design has greatly expanded the potential use of boron clusters. The cobaltabisdicarbollide anion [3,3-Co(1,2-C2B9H11)2] is a sandwich complex characterized by an extraordinary chemical and thermal stability. […]
