    The reactions of Na[HB(mt)3] (mt = methimazolyl) with [Ta(η2-RC≡CR)Cl3(dme)] (R = Ph, Et) provide the structurally characterized complexes [Ta(η2-RC≡CR)Cl 2{HB(mt)3}], the first examples of organometallic tris( methimazolyl )borato derivatives of group 5. The intrinsic chirality of the HB(mt)3 ligand is expressed in a skewing of the alkyne orientation.
