Abstract

The syntheses of mononuclear complexes cis-MoVOXL (X = Cl, Br, OMe, OEt, OPh, SPh, NCS, OSiMe3) and two binuclear complexes MoV2O3L2 of the title ligand LH2 are reported. Two forms of MoOClL, with cis oxo and chloro ligands, were crystallized, one in space group P21/n, with a = 10.440(2) Å, b = 14.260(2) Å, c = 12.041(2) Å, β= 102.76(2)°, V = 1748(1) Å3, and Z = 4, and the other in P21/c, with a = 13.564(4) Å, b = 7.172(2) Å, c = 18.242(6) Å, β = 95.19(1)°, V = 1767(2) Å3, and Z = 4. MoO(OSiMe3)L crystallizes in space group P21/c, with a = 15.923(3) Å, b = 11.141(2) Å, c = 14.186(2) Å, β = 112.64(2)°, V = 2323(1) Å3, and Z = 4, while MoO(NCS)L crystallizes in Pna21, with a = 22.471(2) Å, b =..
