 Title    Synthesis, Structure, and Properties of Homoleptic l-Oxa-l,3-diene Molybdenum and Tungsten Complexes  
 Abstract    Homoleptic tris(l-oxa-l,3-diene)m olybdenum and tungsten complexes are formed as yel­ low, crystalline compounds in 54-80% isolated yield on treatm ent of the corresponding /3-unsubstituted a,/3-unsaturated ketones with W (CO)3(CH 3CH 2CN)3 or (y6-C6H 6)M o(CO)3 in refluxing hexane. Reaction of these oxadienes with (^6-C6H 5CH3)2Mo in tetrahydrofuran or /7-hexane provides a new high yield route to homoleptic molybdenum complexes that are otherwise difficult to prepare. X-ray crystal structure analyses of two air-stable, isomeric tungsten complexes reveal a significant contribution of a cr2,?/2-bonding mode in the coordi­ nated oxadiene moieties. U nder reaction conditions that allow the platinum catalyzed hydro­ genation of phenyl substituents in these ligands, the coordinated oxadiene fragments are inert, thus demonstrating an unprecedented chemoselectivity in the hydrogenation of aryl-substituted enones. On the other hand, the complexes are labile enough to catalyze the cyclotrimerization of alkynes such as methyl propiolate.
