Abstract Stock originally recognized two groups of boron hydrides, the B/sub n/H/ sub a = 4 and B/sub n/H/sub n + series. This classification has been extended and used as a basis for the systematic arrangement of the boron hydrides. Four types of chemical reactions of the boron hydrides are recognized. These are: (1) symmetrical cleavage of the double bridge bond, (2) non-symmetrical cleavage of the double bridge bond, (3) loss of a proton from a hydrogen bridge bond, and (4) loss of molecular hydrogen from the molecule. The type of reaction expected from a given molecule is related to the position of the molecule in the systematic arrangement and to the geometry of the original boron hydride.
