The rate of protonation of the nitrile carbon in trans-[Mo(N2)(NCC6H4R-4)(Ph2PCH2CH2PPh2)2] (R = MeO, Me, H, Cl, MeCO or NO2) shows an unusual non-linear dependence on the identity of R, revealing how both kinetic and thermodynamic factors control the site of protonation in complexes containing a variety of protonatable ligands.
