Tetrahedral Mo2Ir2(μ3-CO)(μ-CO)5(CO)4(η5-C5H5)2 (1) reacted with P(C6H4Me-4)3, P(C6H2Me2-3,5-OMe-4)3, and AsPh3 to afford the substitution products Mo2Ir2(μ-CO)3(CO)6(L)(η5-C5H5)2 [L = P(C6H4Me-4)3 (3), P(C6H2Me2-3,5-OMe-4)3 (4), AsPh3 (5)] in fair to good yields, while reaction of 1 with HC≡CSiPri3 proceeded by insertion into the Mo–Mo bond to give the pseudo-octahedral Mo2Ir2(μ4-η2-HC2SiPri3)(μ-CO)4(CO)4(η5-C5H5)2 (6) in fair yield. While MoIr3(μ-CO)3(CO)7(η5-C5H5) reacted with HC≡CSiMe3 to...[Show more]
