Synthesis, reactivity, and theoretical studies of the η2(4e)-bonded phosphaalkyne complex [CpMo{P(OMe)3}22(4e)-P≡CBut }][B(C6F5)4] and the molybdenum-mediated cyclocotrimerization of alkyne and phosphaalkyne ligands

Synthesis of complexes containing [CpMo{P(OMe)3}22(4e)-P≡CBut }][B(C6F5)4] was discussed. Single crystal X-ray crystallography was used. It was found that the cations do not react with alkynes, alkyne and phosphaalkyne chemistry was also observed.
