Hexaborododecahydride, B6H12

Hexaborododecahydride or borohexylene, B6H12, is a colourless liquid, the vapour density of which is in agreement with the formula given. The vapour pressures at various temperatures are as follows: -

Temp. ° C-40°10°24°100°
Vap. press, (mm.)1101525760


The hydride has a highly disagreeable odour, and ignites spontaneously in the air. It is decomposed by water and alkalies more readily than the preceding hydride: -

B6H12 + 18H2O = 6H3BO3 + 15H2
B6H12 + 6NaOH + 6H2O = 6NaBO2 + 15H2
