Abstract

Reactions of [MoReCp(μ-PR*)(CO)6] with S8 were strongly dependent on experimental conditions (R* = 2,4,6-C6H2tBu3). When using 1 equiv of sulfur, complex [MoReCp(μ-η2:κ1S-SPR*)(CO)6] was slowly formed at 313 K, with a thiophosphinidene ligand unexpectedly bridging the dimetal center in the novel μ-κ1S:η2 coordination mode, as opposed to the μ-κ1P:η2 mode usually found in related complexes. The latter underwent fast decarbonylation at 363 K to give [MoReCp(μ-η2:η2-SPR*)(CO)5], with a six-electron donor thiophosphinidene ligand rearranged into the rare μ-η2:η2 coordination mode. Depending on reaction conditions, reactions with excess sulfur involved the addition of two or three S atoms to the phosphinidene ligand to give new complexes identified as the dithiophosphinidene-bridged complex [MoReCp(μ-η2:κ2S,S'-S2PR*)(CO)5], its dithiophosphonite-bridged isomer [MoReCp(μ-κ2S,S':κ2S,S'-S2PR*)(CO)5], or the trithiophosphonate-bridged derivative [MoReCp(μ-κ2S,S':κ2S,S'-S3PR*)(CO)5], all of them displaying novel coordination modes of their PRS2 and PRS3 ligands, as determined by X-ray diffraction studies. In contrast, the related MoMn complex yielded [MoMnCp(μ-η2:η2-SPR*)(CO)5] under most conditions. A similar output was obtained in reactions with gray selenium for either MoRe or MoMn phosphinidene complexes, which under different conditions only gave the pentacarbonyl complexes [MoMCp(μ-η2:η2-SePR*)(CO)5] (M = Re, Mn), these providing a new coordination mode for selenophosphinidene ligands.
