Halogens oxidatively add to MoRu(CO)(6)(mu-dppm)(2) (1) at ambient temperature to yield [(CO)(2)Mo(mu-X)(mu-CO)(mu-dpmm)(2)Ru(CO)(2)] (divided by)[Mo(CO)(4) X-3](-), where X = Cl (2) or I (3), dppm - Ph2PCH2PPh2, and the mu-CO is semi-bridging. Complexes 2 and 3 have been characterized by elemental analysis, conductivity, and NMR spectroscopy, while the molecular structure of 3 has been determined by X-ray crystallography. Ignoring a weak metal-metal bond interaction, the cation of 3 is most easily described as pseudo-octahedral at Ru(II) and Mo(0) centres; the anion is a monocapped octahedron that has been described previously.
