    That is a carborane. You do not have enough information to draw the structure. I believe that is a isocahedron carborane (i.e. 12 skeletal atoms). The full description of a carborane needs to include the relative positioning of the carbon atoms in the skeleton. It could be a nidocarborane, a closocarborane, or maybe even another type.

    How can I show the structure of a ligand in Yahoo answers!!!

    They should have provided a drawing tool.
