A mononuclear complex [MoOCl4(H2O)] readily forms a metal−metal bonded {Mo2O4}2+ core. A high content of pyridine in the reaction mixture prevents further aggregation of dinuclear cores into larger clusters and a neutral, dinuclear complex with the [Mo2O4Cl2(Py)4] composition is isolated as a product. Solid state structures of two compounds containing this complex, [Mo2O4Cl2(Py)4]·2.25Py (1) and [Mo2O4Cl2(Py)4]·1.5PyHCl (2), were investigated by X-ray crystallography. View Full-Text
