Tetra­kis[μ-N,N′-bis­(4-bromo­phen­yl)formamidinato-κ2 N:N′]dimolyb­denum(II) tetra­hydro­furan solvate

By L.-J. Han


The title complex, [Mo2(C13H9N2Br2)4]·C4H8O, contains a quadruply bonded Mo2 4+ unit equatorially coordinated by four N,N′-bis­(4-bromo­phen­yl)formamidinate ligands, forming a dimetal paddlewheel complex. The centroid of the Mo—Mo bond is located on a special position with 2/m symmetry. In the crystal, complex mol­ecules are linked by Br⋯Br inter­actions [3.7049 (10) Å]. The disordered solvent mol­ecule could not be satisfactorily modelled and was therefore eliminated from the final refinement
