Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The dimetal hexaalkoxides M2(OR)6 of molybdenum and especially tungsten display a rich chemistry. The dimolybdenum analogs are less prone to undergo a reaction with alkynes. The general procedures include experiments carried out in a dry nitrogen atmosphere in a glove box except where noted. This chapter discusses the procedures and properties of hexa(tert-butoxy)dimolybdenum(III), hexakis(2-trifluoromethyl-2-propoxy) dimolybdenum(III), sodium heptachloropentakis, hexa(tert-butoxy)ditungsten(III), and hexakis(2-trifluoromethyl-2-propoxy)ditungsten(III).
