The bis{bis(3-tert-butyl-5-isopropylpyrazolyl)hydroborato}-cobalt(II) complex [BpBut,Pri]2Co has been synthesized by reaction of Tl[BpBut,Pri] with Co(ClO4)2·6H2O; the molecular structure of [BpBut,Pri]2Co is based on a square planar array of pyrazolyl groups with two axial [Co⋯H-B] interactions, in marked contrast to those of other [BpR,R′]2Co derivatives which have tetrahedral structures and are devoid of such interactions.
