Abstract

The complex [MoO(SCH2CH2CH2S) 2]- reacts with HN3 in methanol to give [Mo2O2(μ-N3)(SCH2CH 2CH2S)3]-; X-ray crystallography shows the former anion to have tetragonal pyramidal co-ordination about Mo with an apical oxo-group and the latter to be an asymmetric dinuclear complex with a triple bridge comprising two dithiolate sulphurs and a bent azide group linking two distinct pseudo-octahedral molybdenums.
