Reactivity of CS2 towards the anion [Mo2Cp2(CO)3(PPh2)(μ-η 2-P2)]-; synthesis and characterisation of [Mo2Cp2(CO)3{μ-η3-Ph 2PC(H)SP2S}], a complex containing an unusual CSP2S ring

The complex [Mo2Cp2(CO)3(PPh2H)(μ-η 2-P2)] is deprotonated at -78°C by ButLi; subsequent addition of an excess of CS2 affords the novel complex [Mo2Cp2(CO)3{μ-η3-Ph 2PC(H)SP2S}] in good to moderate yield.
