Abstract

Molybdenum and tungsten complexes containing the pypzH (3-(2-pyridyl)pyrazole) ligand as a chelating bidentate are prepared: [Mo(CO)4(pypzH)], cis-[MoBr(η3-allyl)(CO)2(pypzH)], cis-[MoCl(η3-methallyl)(CO)2(pypzH)], [MI2(CO)3(pypzH)] (M = Mo, W) from [Mo(CO)4(NBD)] or the adequate bis(acetonitrile) complexes. The deprotonation of the molybdenum allyl or methallyl complexes affords the bimetallic complexes [cis-{Mo(η3-allyl)(CO)22-pypz)}]2 or [cis-{Mo(η3-methallyl)(CO)22-pypz)}]22-pypz = μ2-3-(2-pyridyl-κ1N)pyrazolate-2κ1N). The allyl complex was subjected to an electrochemical study, which shows a marked connection between both metallic centres through the bridging pyridylpyrazolates.
