Novel heterobimetallic coordination of the H2B(mt)(2) ligand: The complex Mo(SnMe2Cl)(CO)(3){mu-S : K-3 -H,S,S '-H2B(mt)2} (mt = methimazolyl)
Journal article, 2005

Molybdenum stannyl complexes ligated by poly(methimazolyl)borate ligands are accessible via complementary strategies involving oxidative addition of either Ph3Sn{HB(mt)(3)} (mt = methimazolyl) or [Me2Sn{H2B(Mt)(2)}]Cl to molybdenum(0) precursors or alternatively via reactions of halostannanes with the salts Na[Mo(CO)(3){HxB(mt)(4-x)}] (x = 1, 2). One example provides a novel complex in which the H2B(Mt)(2) ligand bridges both molybdenum and tin, thereby providing a model for an intermediate in the oxidative addition protocol.
