Exploration of the pentacyano- cyclo -pentadienide ion, C 5 (CN) 5 − , as a weakly coordinating anion and potential superacid conjugate base. Silylation and protonation

Published Web Location

The reportedly unprotonatable pentacyano-cyclo-pentadienide ion, C(5)(CN)(5)(-), can be protonated and silylated at the cyano N atom using electrophilic reagents derived from weakly coordinating carborane anions.
