Synthesis and X-ray Crystal Structure of trans-Mo(CO)4{Ph2P(CH2CH2O)4CH2CH2PPh2-P,P′}, a Molecular Gyroscope Formed by Trans Coordination of a Bis(phosphine) Ligand in an Octahedral Metal Complex

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Photolysis of cis-Mo(CO)4{Ph2P(CH2CH2O)4CH2CH2PPh2-P,P′) (1) in THF under nitrogen gives trans-Mo(CO)4{Ph2P(CH2CH2O)4CH2CH2PPh2-P,P′} (2). Complex 2 is the first example of a metalla crown ether in which the α,ω-bis(phosphorus donor)polyether ligand is trans coordinated. It is also a rare example of an octahedral complex with a trans-spanning bis(phosphine) ligand. © 1994, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
