Syntheses and Spectroscopic Studies on Macrocyclic Complexes of Dioxomolybdenum(VI) with Furil as Precursor
Due to their biological relevance, molybdenum catalyzed oxygen transfer reactions have great interest. With this view, some dioxomolybdenum(VI) complexes with general formula [MoO2(mac)](acac)2, (where mac = tetraazamacrocyclic ligands derived from condensation of furil with 1,2-ethanediamine or 1,3-propanediamine and their reaction with β-diketones) have been synthesized using dioxometal ion as kinetic template. The prepared complexes have been characterized by electrical conductance, elemental analyses, infrared and electronic data. All the dioxomoly-bdenum(VI) complexes have octahedral geometry with six coordination.
