A new ionic organic-inorganic hybrid complex of formula («-Bu 4N)2[Mo(i018(NR)] 1/2Me2CO, R = -C6H2-2,6-Me 2-4-Br, (w-Bu4N)2[l]-i4Me2CO, has been prepared in acetonitrile by reacting tetrabutylammonium a-octamolybdate, («-Bu4N)4[0t-Mo8O26], with 2,6-dimethyl-4-bromoaniline hydrochloride, 2,6-Me2-4-Br-C 6H2NH2HCl, using N,N′- dicyclohexylcarbodiimide, (C6HU)N=C=N(C6H 11), as dehydrating agent. This complex, formulated as («-Bu4N)2[l]1/2Me2CO, contains a C-Br group which can be functionahzed for constructing novel hybrid materials. The complex was fully characterized by IR, UV-Vis, 'H- and "C-NMR spectroscopies, and authenticated by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The asymmetric unit contains two crystallographically independent anions, [l]2", differing by the orientation of the phenyl ring relative to the hexamolybdate skeleton, and one molecule of acetone. Both molecules differ in the angles Mo(l)-N(l)-C(l)= 172.2(6) and Mo(7)-N(2)-C(9)= 175.6(6)°. These angles, near to 180°, indicate the presence of a Mo=N triple bond.
