New Adamantane-like Silicophosphate Cage and Its Reactivity toward Tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane

New Adamantane-like Silicophosphate Cage and Its Reactivity toward Tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane

The condensation of Ph2Si(OC(O)CH3)2 with OP(OSiMe3)3 provides the new silicophosphate molecule Ph12Si6P4O16 (1) with an adamantane-like core. The reaction with B(C6F5)3 provides two new adducts. In Ph12Si6O16P4·3B(C6F5)3 (2) possessing C3 symmetry, the adamantane-like cage is preserved ,forming homochiral crystals of 2P and 2M. The second adduct Ph6Si3O8P2·2B(C6F5)3 (3) resulted from an unexpected reorganization of Si−O−P linkages. Its inorganic core represents half of the parent molecule 1.
