Abstract

In the title molecular salt, C9H17N2+·C2H12B9-, the carborane cage has a bridging B - H - B bond on the open B3C2 face. The butyl side chain of the cation adopts an extended conformation [C - C - C - C = 179.6 (1)°]. In the crystal, the imidazo-lium ring is almost coplanar with the open face of the carborane anion. The cations stack in the [010] direction and the dihedral angle between the imidazolium rings of adjacent cations is 68.45 (6)°. The butyl chains extend into the space between carborane anions.
