Abstract

(eta(5)-C(5)Me(5))WO2(CH(2)SiMe(3)), which has crystallographic mirror symmetry, exhibits the three-legged piano stool geometry typical for complexes of this type. The pentamethylcyclopentadienyl ligand is asymmetrically bound to the metal atom [W-C=2.321 (8)-2.477 (4) Angstrom]. The W=O and W-C(alkyl) distances are 1.717 (4) and 2.128 (8) Angstrom, respectively.
