Triplet EPR spectra of o-carboranylcarbene and its 2-methyl derivative have been observed at 5 K in frozen solutions. The zero-field splitting parameters indicate little delocalization of the π spin density onto the carboranyl moiety, in contrast to the results observed for benzenoid aromatic moieties.
