Reactions of (dialkyamino)diphenylphosphines (R2NPPh2; R = Me, Et, Pr, Bu) with Mo(CO)6 and (C7H8)Mo(CO)4 have been studied, and the following complexes prepared: (R2NPPh2 Mo(CO)5 (R = Et, Pr, Bu); cis- and trans-(R2NPPh2)2Mo(CO)4 (R = Me, Et, Pr, Bu). IR, NMR and mass spectral data for these complexes are reported. Attempts to prepare dinuclear molybdenum complexes with both phosphorous and nitrogen as bridging ligand atoms yielded only phosphorous-bridged derivatives.
