A molybdenum germylene complex having Mo-H and Ge-H bonds, Cp*(CO)2(H)Mo=Ge(H){C(SiMe3)3} (1), was synthesized by the reaction of a methyl molybdenum complex with a trihydrogermane and was converted to a germylyne complex, Cp*(CO)2MoGe{C(SiMe3)3} (2), via dehydrogenation with aryl isocyanates under mild heating. A similar conversion from the same germylene complex into the germylyne complex also occurred using nitriles instead of isocyanates, while releasing imines via a Mo-Ge-N three-membered ring complex Cp*(CO)2Mo[κ2(N,Ge)Ge-(N=CHR){C(SiMe3)3}] (4, R = Me and aryl groups) as an intermediate. Formation of imines was confirmed by a trapping experiment with BPh3, which afforded a BPh3-imine adduct. In the case of aryl nitriles, the corresponding three-membered ring intermediates were converted into the germylyne complex efficiently by blue LED light irradiation. TD-DFT calculations on the three-membered-ring intermediate suggest that the role of the LED light is to induce CO ligand dissociation from the intermediate via a metal-to-ligand-charge-transfer (MLCT) transition.
