Reaction of HMo(CO)3C5H5 and Sn(C5H5)2 produces the tin hydride HSn[Mo(CO)3C5H5]3 (I). Reaction of I with CCl4, CHCl3, or CH2Cl2 gives ClSn[Mo(CO)3C5H5]3 (II). With hydrogen chloride the hydride I reacts to produce the dichloride Cl2Sn[Mo(CO)3C5H5]2. The first step in this reaction is cleavage of the SnH bond to produce the chloride II. The hydride I reacts with acetic acid to produce the diacetate (CH3COO)2Sn[Mo(CO)3C5H5]2.
