Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, UniVersity of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado 80309 Received December 11, 2003 Molybdenum complexes of 3,6-di-tert-butylcatechol have been prepared from the reaction between [Mo(CO)6] and3,6-di-tert-butyl-1,2-benzoquinone. A putative "[MoO(3,6-DBCat)2]" monomer is assumed to form initially by reactionwith trace quantities of oxygen. Condensation of the reaction mixture leads to the formation of oligomeric products,including the [{MoO(3,6-DBCat) } 2 4] chiral square isolated by chromatographic separation. Molybdenum centers at the corner of the square are bridged by oxo ligands centered along edges. Four-fold and inversion crystallographicsymmetry gives tetramers as either ΛΛΛΛ or ∆∆∆∆ isomers, and the crystal structure consists of parallelcolumns of squares with the same chirality. Addition of O-Subst (O-Subst ) dmso, pyridine N-oxide, triphenylarsineoxide) ligands to [MoO(3,6-DBCat)2] occurs selectively to give cis-[MoO(O-Subst)(3,6-DBCat)2] products. All threeaddition complexes are fluxional in solution. The temperature-dependent stereodymanic behavior of [MoO(dmso)-(3,6-DBCat)2] has been shown to occur via a trigonal prismatic intermediate (Bailar twist) that conserves the cisdisposition of oxo and dmso ligands. Electrochemical and chemical reduction reactions have been investigated for[MoO(dmso)(3,6-DBCat)2] with interest in displacement of SMe2 with formation of cis-[MoO2(3,6-DBCat)2]2-. Cyclicvoltammetry shows an irreversible two-electron reduction for the complex at −0.852 V (vs Fc/Fc+). Chemical reductionusing CoCp2 was observed to give a product with an electronic spectrum that is generally associated with cis-[MoO2(Cat)2]2- complexes. Structural characterization revealed that the product was [CoCp2][MoO(3,6-DBCat)2],possibly formed as the product of dmso displacement upon one-electron reduction of [MoO(dmso)(3,6-DBCat)2].
The coordination chemistry of molybdenum with ligands derived from o-benzoquinones has been of interest in studieson oxo coordination to complexes of Mo(VI).1 Oxo andcatecholate ligands both stabilize high oxidation state metalions through strong σ and π donation to vacant metal orbitals,and both ligands are subject to displacement upon protonation ligands are relevant to oxo transfer chemistry (eq 2) in pro- (eq 1).

From experience with related 3,5-DBBQ reactions, it isnot unreasonable to expect that [Mo(3,6-DBCat)3] would beformed as a product of the [Mo(CO)6]/3,6-DBBQ reaction.

Since monooxomolybdenum(VI) speciesare unusual, and there appears to be no structural charac-terization on addition products to five-coordinate [MoVIO-(L)4] complexes, there are no relevant examples for com-parison. Seven-coordinate peroxo(monooxo)molybdenum(VI)complexes are common, and the peroxo group is generallycoordinated at sites cis to the oxo ligand. Five-coordinate[MoVOL4] species have distorted square pyramidal geom-etries, and addition of weakly coordinating ligands occursat the site trans to the ModO bond. Examples characterizedstructurally include trans-[MoVOCl4(H2O)]-, trans-[MoV-OCl4(CH3CN)]-, and trans-[MoVO(Cl4Cat)2(thf)]-.25,26 Forthe d0 metals of the [MoO(O-subst)(3,6-DBCat)2] series,electrostatic repulsions resulting from the strong concentra-tion of π electron density in the Mo-OOxo and Mo-OCat Figure 6.

bonds contribute to making the cis geometry preferred over the trans structure. Rotation of one catecholate ligand out ofthe tetragonal plane of the trans isomer moves the pπ-orbitalsof the catecholate oxygens away from the Mo-OOxo bond.
As a consequence, the O1-Mo-O6 angles in Table 3 arecloser to 90° than the angles to O3 and O4. Further, the Modxy orbital of the cis isomer is in position to participate inπ-bonding with catecholate oxygen O6 as a contributingelectronic interaction.
Subtle features of the three complex molecules deserve comment.

Experimentally, either O-SubstOx dissociationfrom the Mo(V) species formed upon one-electron reductionor reactivity of oxo ligands of the cis-dioxomolybdenum-(VI) product formed by two-electron reduction has precludedobservation of SubstRed displacement.
