Soft (S-3-donor) scorpionate complexes of molybdenum and tungsten carbonyls

Garner, M. and Lehmann, M.A. and Reglinski, J. and Spicer, M.D. (2001) Soft (S-3-donor) scorpionate complexes of molybdenum and tungsten carbonyls. Organometallics, 20 (24). pp. 5233-5236. ISSN 0276-7333

The dicarbonyl(eta (3)-allyl)molybdenum and tri-carbonyliodotungsten complexes with hydrotris(methimazolyl)borate (Tm) are reported as the first examples of transition-metal organometallic complexes of the Tm ligand, serving as general entry points for a wide range of group 6 organometallic complexes. Their crystal structures have been determined, and comparisons are made with the homologous pyrazolylborate (Tp) and cyclopentadienyl (Cp) complexes, leading to predictions regarding their reactions.
