Abstract

The reactions of Tp(iPr)Mo(VI)O(2)Cl with salicylanilides and NEt(3) produce cis-Tp(iPr)Mo(VI)O(2)(2-OC(6)H(4)CONHR) (Tp(iPr) = hydrotris(3-isopropylpyrazol-1-yl)borate, R = Ph, 4-C(6)H(4)Cl, 4-C(6)H(4)OMe). The N-methyl complex, Tp(iPr)MoO(2){2-OC(6)H(4)CON(Me)Ph}, is similarly prepared. Reduction of the amido complexes by cobaltocene produces green, EPR-active compounds, [CoCp(2)][Tp(iPr)Mo(V)O(2)(2-OC(6)H(4)CONHR)], that exhibit strong, low energy, ν(MoO(2)) IR bands at ∼ 895 and 790 cm(-1) (cf. ∼ 935 and 900 cm(-1) for the Mo(VI) analogues). The X-ray structures of all seven complexes have been determined. In each case, the Mo center exhibits a distorted octahedral coordination geometry ..
