The perfluorinated boraindene 3 was synthesized and fully characterized. Both computational and crystallographic data show that 3 is antiaromatic. Compound 3 was shown to react reversibly with H2 and to catalyse the hydrogenation of cyclohexene. The mechanism of catalysis was probed experimentally and computationally.
