Tetra-coordinated boron derivatives, (EtO)B(DTZ) and (DTZH)B(DTZ), (where DTZ−− and DTZ− represent the anions of the Schiff base DTZH2) have been synthesized by 1:1 and 1:2 molar reactions of triethoxyborane with bibasic tridentate Schiff bases, derived by the equimolar condensation of S-methyl or S-benzyldithiocarbazate with acetyl acetone or benzoyl acetone. Further 1:1 derivatives have been shown to undergo replacement reactions witht-butyl alcohol, showing thereby the labile nature of the ethoxy group. Based on infrared and proton magnetic resonance spectral studies and monomeric nature, suitable structures have been assigned to these derivatives.
