Molybdenum dinitrogen complex supported by a cyclohexane-based triphosphine ligand and dmpm†
We report the first molybdenum dinitrogen complex supported by a cyclohexane-based triphosphine ligand. By employing several spectroscopic methods we are able to pinpoint the pentaphosphine environment and evaluate the activation of the dinitrogen ligand. Furthermore, we conduct protonation experiments and obtain spectroscopic evidence for the formation of a hydrazido-species.
