Synthesis and structure of dioxomolybdenum(VI) complex of amine triphenolato ligand

Lehtonen A, Kessler VG


Addition of two equivalents of tris(2-hydroxy-3,5-dimethylbenzyl)amine (H(3)Lig) to the solution of MoO2(acac)(2) in MeOH results in the formation of anionic complex, which precipitates as LigH(4)[MoO(2)Lig], a yellow crystalline solid. Crystal structure determinations reveal that the asymmetric unit consists of one [MoO(2)Lig](-) anion, one H(4)Lig(+) cation and two molecules of solvent. Three phenoxide groups of the tetradentate ligand are bonded to cis-MoO22+ -ion in xy-plane, while the amino nitrogen atom completes the distorted octahedral coordination. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V.
