Abstract

An unprecedented, 22-valence-electron triple-decker sandwich complex [(Cp*Mo)2{μ-η66-B4H4Ru2(CO)6}], 2, has been prepared. In an effort to generate analogous triple-deckers with group 6 metal carbonyl fragments in the middle deck, we have isolated [(Cp*MoCO)2(μ-H)2B4H4], 3, that provides the first direct evidence for the missing link between [(Cp*MoCl)2B3H7] and [(Cp*Mo)2B5H9] clusters.
