Journal of Chemical Crystallography
Treatment of [Mo(CO)3(NCMe)3] with bis(diphenylphosphino)methane (dppm) and triphenylphosphine (PPh3) at 50 °C afforded mer-[Mo(CO)3(PPh3)(κ2-dppm)] (1) in 55% yield which has been characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies and spectroscopic measurements. Compound 1 crystallizes in the triclinic space group P−1 with a = 10.3449(6), b = 11.1570(6), c = 17.8961(10) Å, β = 80.8400(10)°, Z = 2 and V = 1959.8(2) Å3.
