Abstract: Ligand-transfer reaction from the quadruply bonded complex cis-[Mo2(pzNP)2(OAc)2][BF4]2 (1) (pzNP = 2-(2-pyrazinyl)- 1,8-naphthyridine) to non-bonded dicopper(I) core proceeds with the concomitant oxidation of the [Mo2]4+ core by the perchlorate anion, resulting in the [Cu2( -Cl)(pzNP)2][ClO4] (2) and oxo-molybdenum species. X-ray analysis of (2) shows the presence of a chloride anion bridging the two Cu(I) atoms. The chloride originates from the quantitative reduction of one perchlorate anion by the electron-rich dimolybdenum(II) species, mimicking the functional role of molybolenum cofactor in the perchlorate reducing bacteria.
