Abstract

The title complex, [Mo(C5H5)(C6H4FO)(C4H11Si)(NO)], is formed by reacting CpMo(NO)(CH2SiMe3)(2), where Cp is cyclopentadienyl, with one equivalent of p-FC6H4OH. The complex exhibits the expected piano-stool molecular structure, with a linear nitrosyl ligand [Mo-N-O 168.2 (2)degrees] having Mo-N and N-O distances of 1.764 (2) and 1.207 (3) Angstrom, respectively. The phenoxo Mo-O distance of 1.945 (2) Angstrom is suggestive of some multiple-bond character.
