Synthesis of novel molybdaboranes from (eta(5)-C5R5)MoCln precursors (R=H,Me; n=1,2,4)

Abstract:

Reaction of Cp*MoCl4(1), or (Cp*MoCl2)2 (2), Cp* = η5-C5Me5, with BH3·THF ultimately generates the Mo(II) cluster (Cp*Mo)2B5H9 (7), together with the Mo(III) species (Cp*MoCl)2B4H10, 4. Prereduction of 2 before reaction with BH3·THF yields only 7. The structure of 4 consists of two Cp*Mo units bridged by two chlorides and a [B2H5(B2H5)]2- ligand in which the two diboron moieties are connected by a B-B-B three center bond. Closer inspection of the reaction by 11B and 1H NMR reveals the existen...
