The title compound was prepared by treating [ReCl2(PPh 3)2(NNCOPh)] with excess of benzoylhydrazine in methanol solution: X-ray crystallography reveals a unique example of monohapto-co- ordination by a hydrazido(1-) grouping, -NHNHR, and an unusual instance of mixed hydrazido(2-) and hydrazido(1-) co-ordination to a metal site.
