Novel Concurrent Formation of Mo-Si and Si-C Bonds by the Reaction between [MoH_4(Ph_2PCH_2CH_2PPh_2)_2] and PhSiH_3
Reaction of [MoH<SUB>4</SUB>(Ph<SUB>2</SUB>PCH<SUB>2</SUB>CH<SUB>2</SUB>PPh<SUB>2</SUB>)<SUB>2</SUB>] with PhSiH<SUB>3</SUB> in refluxing toluene yielded doubly chelated novel complexes with the Si–C–C–P–Mo framework as a result of the oxidative addition involving Si–H bond cleavage concurrent with the selective activation of the ortho C–H bonds of the dppe ligands.
