Abstract

The preparation of the main group mixed metal complexes (C6H5)3SnM(CO)6, (C6H5)3SnM(CO)5(C6H5)3P, (C6H5)3SnM(CO)4[(C6H5)2PCH2]2; (C6H5)3PAuM(CO)6, (C6H5)3PAuM(CO)5(C6H5)3P; C2H5HgM(CO)6, C2H5HgM(CO)5(C6H5)3P where M = V, Nb or Ta is described. The unsubstituted complexes are very prone to heterolytic cleavage in weak donor solvents. This behavior, as well as that for the phosphine substituted complexes, is discussed in relationship to the synthesis of mixed metal complexes.
