Abstract

Pentacarbonyl(trimethylamine)chromium (1) and pentacarbonyl(trimethylamine) molybdenum (2) are isomorphous and crystallize in the space group P2 1/n, a = 6.8267(14) Å, b = 11.269(2) Å, c = 14.692(3) Å, β = 102.89(3)°, V = 1,101.8(4) Å3, Z = 4 for 1 and a = 6.949(5) Å, b = 11.362(5) Å, c = 14.927(5) Å, β = 102.639(5)°, V = 1,150.0(10) Å3, Z = 4 for 2; both compounds possess distorted octahedral molecular geometries that result from the steric influence of the coordinated amine ligand.
