Abstract

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. Crystal data for C30H41N5Si3S3Mo (1): monoclinic space group P21n, a = 11.600(2), b = 14.880(3), c = 21.681(3) Å, β = 90.46(1)°, V = 3242.2(12) Å3, Z = 4; 5690 reflections, R = 0.049.
