Abstract

Conversion of the dialkyl nitrosyl complex Cp*Mo(NO)(CH(2)SiMe(3))(2) (1) to the lithium salt of the anionic alkylidene complex [Cp*Mo(NO)(CH(2)SiMe(3))(=CHSiMe(3))](2)[Li-2(THF)(3)] (2) may be effected with each of the lithium reagents LiN(SiMe(3))(2), LDA, or LiPPh(2). Interestingly, each transformation follows a different mechanistic pathway.
