Molybedenum[I] Complex
« on: August 10, 2019, 09:47:43 AM »
There is a Complex of Mo, overall positive 1 charge. It has 4 ligands, 2 of which are Cp- rings, 1 is H- and the final is ethene.

I can't find the name of the complex, so I'm posting here.

Would ligand field theory, and spectrochemical series predict the complex to be tetrahedral or square planar?
I think square planar. What do you think?
