Abstract

We have undertaken a systematic research1 on the reactivity of (π-C5H5)2MoH2 (abbreviated as Cp2MoH2) and reported the stereochemistry and mechanism of the reactions with olefins, acetylenes, and azo compounds. Here we briefly summarize some of the results and discuss the features which give an important insight into the unique reactivity and interesting nature of the metal-hydrogen bond. The chemistry should have an important bearing on the nitrogen fixation by some metalloenzymes.
