Trimethylphosphine as a reactive solvent: synthesis and crystal structure of Ta(PMe3)32-CH2–PMe2)(η2-CH–PMe2) and synthesis of related molybdenum and tungsten compounds

Abstract

Reduction of solutions of the metal halides TaCl5, MoCl5, or WCl6 in pure trimethylphosphine with sodium sand causes smooth stepwise reduction giving Ta(PMe3)3(η2-CH2–PMe2)(η2-CH–PMe2), Mo(PMe3)5H2, or W(PMe3)4(η2-CH2–PMe2)H respectively; the X-ray crystal structure of the tantalum compound shows the presence of the unique Ta(η2-CH–PMe2) group.
