Abstract

The syntheses and structures of [FeL3]- and [MoL4] are described (L = pyrimidine-2-thiolate). The structures are similar to those of the known Co and W homologous complexes. The unbound nitrogens can be cleanly protonated and alkylated, but they are weak donors to Lewis acids such as Fe and Cu.
