Intermediates and products of the reaction of MoCl5 with ethanol: crystal structures of [MoOCl3(EtOH)] and H[MoOCl4]·2EtOH

Abstract

An intermediate in the ethanolysis reactions of MoCl 5 , [MoOCl 3 (EtOH)] 2, has been isolated after the reaction of MoCl 5 with 2 equivalents of EtOH and its crystal structure was determined. Treatment of MoCl 5 with 2.5 equivalents of EtOH and subsequent cooling as well as the reaction of [Cl 2 OMo(µ-OEt) 2 (µ-HOEt)MoOCl 2 ] 1 with HCl(g) yield a product which has been identified as H[MoOCl 4 ]·2EtOH 3 by X-ray crystallography. The mechanisms leading to 13 are discussed. The reactions of 2 with donors have been investigated and [Cl 2 OMo(µ-OPr) 2 (µ-HOPr)MoOCl 2 ] 4 was obtained as a first derivative of 1 after the reaction of MoCl 5 with PrOH.
