Abstract

full title: Thiolato-bridged dimolybdenum complexes with metal-metal bond order of 0 and 2: X-ray structures of [Mo2(CO)4(μ-SPh) 2(η-C5H5)2].0.5-[Mo 2(SPh)2(O)2(μ-O)(η -C5H 5)2] and [Mo2(CO)2(μ-SBu t)2(η-C5H5)2] The complexes [Mo2(CO)4(μ-SR)2(η- C5H5)2] (R = Me, But, Ph, p-tolyl), which do not contain metal-metal bonds, decarbonylate readily on heating to produce [MO2(CO)2(μ-SR)2(η-C 5H5)2], containing a formal double metal-metal bond; the structures of [Mo2(CO)4(μ-SPh)2-(η-C 5H5)2] and [Mo2(CO) 2(μ-SBut)2(η-C5H 5)2] have been established by X-ray diffraction.
