Abstract

The pentanuclear cluster complex (NEt4)2[MoS4(CuBp)4] has been prepared in acetone as a new candidate for nonlinear optical activity. The NLO properties of the cluster were studied, giving n2 = -4.2 × 10-11 esu and β = 2.2 × 10-10 m W-1. The structure of the complex has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The coordination environment around each copper atom is distorted tetrahedral with two N donors of the bidentate bis(pyrazolyl)borate ligands and two S donors of the MoS4 group, offering a structural model for some copper proteins. The Mo atom retains the tetrahedral geometry of the free [MoS4]2- anion and lies on a position with crystallographic S4 symmetry. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
