The complexes [M(CO)42-H2L)] [M = Cr; 1, Mo; 2, W; 3] have been synthesized by photochemical reactions of VIB metal carbonyls [M(CO)6] [M = Cr, Mo, W] with N,N′- bis(salicylidene)-1,2-bis-(o-aminophenoxy)ethane (H2L) in THF and characterized by elemental analyses, FTIR, 1H NMR and mass spectra. The H2L ligand is coordinated to the central metal as a bidentate ligand via the central azomethine nitrogen atoms in 1-3.
