Abstract

The use of methanol as solvent is essential for the formation of the double-bookshelf-type oxide cluster [(Cp*Rh)2Mo6O20(OMe)2]2- from [{Cp*Rh(μ-Cl)Cl}2] and four equivalents of [Mo2O7]2. The reaction proceeds via [Cp*RhMo3O8(OMe)5]-. The proposed structure for this key intermediate (shown schematically) is supported by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry and labeling experiments with CD3OD as solvent. Cp* = η5-C5Me5.
