Abstract

The bis[hydrazido(2 - )]-complex [Mo-(NNMePh)2(S 2CNMe2)2] reacts with 1 equiv. of HCl to give [Mo(NNMePh)(NHNMePh)(S2CNME2)2]+, isolated as the tetraphenylborate salt, an X-ray crystal structure determination of which shows that the complex is seven-co-ordinate, displaying both end-on hydrazido-(2 - )- and side-on hydrazido(1 - )-co-ordination; the N-N distance in the hydrazido (2 - )-ligand of 1.29 Å is close to that observed in the bis[hydrazido(2 - )]-precursor, and the hydrazido(1 - )-ligand is asymmetrically side-on bound with metal-nitrogen distances of 2.07 and 2.18 Å and an N-N distance of 1.39 Å.
