Abstract

The title compound, [Mo(CH2Ph)2(C4H9N)2], contains two slightly bent imido ligands and two benzyl ligands. One of these benzyl ligands is coordinated as a simple η1-alky 1 ligand, while the other is η2-coordinated through the CH2 group and the ipso-C atom, i.e. dibenzyl-κCα; κ2C1, Cα-bis(tert-butylimido-κN)molybdenum(VI). Considering the η2-benzyl ligand as occupying one coordination site, this gives a tetrahedral geometry around molybdenum, the main angular distortion being a mutual repulsion of the two strongly π-donating imido ligands. This complex is not crystallographically isostructural with its chromium analogue, but the two molecular structures are very similar.
