New organometallic compounds containing the cis-[MoO(NNPhR)]2+ core have been synthesized by means of a two-step procedure involving: (i) functionalization of the precursor [MoO2Br2(o-phen)] (1) with MePhNNH2 and Ph2NNH2 to afford the intermediates [MoO(NNMePh)Br2(o-phen)] (2) and [MoO(NNPh2)Br2(o-phen)] · MeCN (3), respectively, and (ii) reaction of these intermediates with Grignard reagents to give [MoO(NNPhR)Me2(o-phen)] [R = Me (4), R = Ph (5)], [MoO(NNPhMe)Ph2(o-phen)] (6), and [MoO(NNPh2)Ph2(o-phen)] · CH2Cl2 (7). These compounds have been characterized by 1H-NMR, IR, and UV/Vis spectroscopy and the crystal and molecular structures of 5 and 7 have been determined by X-ray diffraction analysis.
