Synthesis and reactivity of molybdenum imido alkylidene bis-pyrazolide complexes

Reaction of Li(3,5-R(2)-pyrazolide) (R = tBu or Ph, dXpz) with Mo(NAr)(CHCMe(2)Ph)(OTf)(2)(DME) yields Mo(NAr)(CHCMe(2)Ph)(dXpz)(2) in good yield. These complexes react with alcohols or the surface silanols of silica, to yield bis-alkoxy and surface mono-siloxy alkene metathesis catalysts, respectively.
