Abstract

The title structure, [Mo2(CH3O)8(O)2] 0.75·[Mo2Cl2-(CH3O) 6(O)2]0.25, contains two crystallographically independent centrosymmetric molecules, each of which has a major [MoO(OMe)4]2 disorder component and a minor [MoOCl(OMe)3]2 disorder component, with a cis arrangement of the chloro and oxo ligands. The oxo ligands lie in the equatorial plane of the metal atoms and bridging ligands. The methoxo bridges are markedly asymmetric as a consequence of the strong trans influence of the terminal oxo ligands compared with the terminal methoxo ligands. Coordination of the Mo atoms is distorted octahedral.
