Abstract

In 1960, Wilkinson discovered that several carboxylic acids, HO2CR, react with molybdenum hexacarbonyl, Mo(CO)6, at elevated temperatures to form complexes of the type "Mo(O2CR)2". The true nature of these bright yellow molybdenum( II) complexes was established in 1964 with the publication by Lawton and Mason of the X-ray crystal structure of tetra(acetato)dimolybdenum. A vast body of experimental data has confirmed this proposal and Mo2(O2CCH3)4 has provided access to a large number of derivatives with aMo2 4+ core. This chapter describes the synthesis of molybdenum(II) acetate. It discusses the procedure and properties of tetra(acetato)dimolybdenum(II).
