The reaction of [Mo2Cl4(μ-S2)(μ-2-SC5H3NH-3-SiMe3)(2-SC5H3N-3-SiMe3)2] with phenylhydrazine yields [Mo(NNPh)(2-SC5H3N-3-SiMe3)3] (1). Complex 1 adopts a pentagonal bipyramidal geometry with the phenyldiazenido group occupying an axial position. The structural parameters exhibited by 1 are similar to those of other members of the class of seven coordinate Mo-hydrazido and Mo-diazenido species.
