[Ag]2[B12Cl12] as a Catalyst in PhICl2 Mediated Chlorination

preprint

The weakly coordinating [B12Cl12]2- originates from a family of carboranes typically reserved for application in coordination chemistry. Here, we show its readily accessible Ag(I) salt, [Ag]2[B12Cl12], can be used as a catalyst in the PhICl2 mediated chlorination of arenes, alkenes, and alkynes. The promising activity displayed by [Ag]2[B12Cl12] over a variety of commercially available Ag(I) sources merits its incorporation to the toolkit of commonly screened silver catalysts in synthesis.
