Chemistry of oxo-metal ions-VI 1,10-phenanthrolinium oxopentachloromolybdate(V) and its derivatives
TL;DR: In this article, it has been shown that the oxometal entity MoO 3+ remains intact under various physicochemical methods and the probable constitution of expected cis-trans isomers of MoOCl 3 ·phen has also been discussed.
Abstract: 1,10 Phenanthrolinium oxopentachloro molybdate(V), PhenH 2 [MoOCl 5 ] has been isolated as yellowish-green solid and from this salt the non-electrolytic paramagnetic complexes MoOCl 3 ·phen have been prepared in three different isometric (colored reddish-pink, pale brown and green) forms by dehydrohalogenation in suitable solvent and solid state reaction. Hydrolysis of the parent salt yielded the diamagnetic complex, Mo 2 O 4 Cl 2 (phen) 2 as brownish red solid. All these products and the parent salt have been shown to be interconvertible and the probable constitution of expected cis-trans isomers of MoOCl 3 ·phen has also been discussed. All these compounds have been studied by various physicochemical methods and it has been shown that the oxometal entity MoO 3+ remains intact under various chemical environments.
