A new MoVI Schiff base complex: methanol[N'-(3-methoxy-2-oxidobenzylidene)benzohydrazidato]dioxidomolybdenum(VI)
Journal article, 2011

In the title benzilidene Schiff base molybdenum(VI) complex, [Mo(C15H12N2O3)O2(CH3OH)], the MoVI ion is coordinated by two oxide O atoms and by two O atoms and one N atom of the tridentate N'-(3-methoxy-2-oxidobenzylidene)benzohydrazidate (L) Schiff base ligand. The methanol O atom completes the distorted octahedral configuration of the MoVI atom. Strong O-H...N hydrogen bonds form a C(5) chain around a 21 screw axis. Weak C-H...O hydrogen bonds are also present.
