Abstract

A planar structure with C2v symmetry is a description of 1‐chloroborepin 1, and is consistent with the presumption that 1 and probably also 1 H‐borepin are aromatic compounds. The Mo(CO)3 complex was prepared from 1. Its structure was also determined, and it could be reduced to the stable complex 2. (Figure Presented.)
