Abstract

This article reports the synthesis, crystal structure of new molybdenum hexaazide cluster complex (nBu4N)2[{Mo6I8}(N3)6] (3) and comparison of its photophysical and electrochemical properties to those of earlier reported analogues (nBu4N)2[{Mo6X8}(N3)6] (X = Cl, Br). Additionally, the dimerisation of 3 as a result of hydrolysis was revealed by mass spectrometry and single crystal X-Ray diffraction. Indeed, the structurally characterised compound (nBu4N)4[({Mo6I8}(N3)5)2O] represents the first example of oxo-bridged dimer of octahedral molybdenum clusters complexes.
