Synthesis and Migratory-Insertion Reactivity of CpMo(CO)[subscript3](CH[subscript3]): Small-Scale Organometallic Preparations Utilizing Modern Glovebox Techniques
Whited, Matthew T.; Hofmeister, Gretchen E.
Journal of Chemical Education, v91 n7 p1050-1053 2014
Experiments are described for the reliable small-scale glovebox preparation of CpMo(CO)[subscript 3](CH[subscript 3]) and acetyl derivatives thereof through phosphine-induced migratory insertion. The robust syntheses introduce students to a variety of organometallic reaction mechanisms and glovebox techniques, and they are easily carried out during three laboratory meetings. Furthermore, the series of complexes offers several interesting case studies for symmetry analysis of IR and NMR spectra.
