The title complex, [Mo(C8F12)(C5H 5)(C3H6NS2)], contains both a ?4-C4(CF3)4 cyclobutadienyl ligand with approximate C4v local symmetry and a ?5- C4H5 cyclopentadienyl ring. The centroids of the rings and the S atoms of a chelating dithiocarbamate ligand define the pseudo-tetrahedral coordination of the Mo atom. The Mo-C(cyclobutadienyl) bond lengths [2.189 (2)-2.211 (2) Å] are unusually short, probably reflecting strong electron withdrawal by the trifluoromethyl groups. The molecules straddle crystallographic mirror planes. © 2005 International Union of Crystallography.
