Abstract

Several thixanthato complexes of Mo(IV) have been prepared and characterized as diamagnetic, 8-coordinate species. The IR, NMR and electronic spectra of these complexes are discussed and compared with the previously reported dithiocarbamate and dithiocarboxylate analogues. The complexes are electrochemically active, and controlled potential electrolysis of the isopropyl compound, Mo(S2CSiC3H7)4, at +0.4 V yields [Mo(S2CSiC3H7)4]+. The ESR and electronic spectra of this Mo(V) complex are discussed.
