Mo(PMe 3) 6 and W(PMe 3) 4(η 3-CH 2PMe 2)H react with the diphenol CH 2(Ai Me2OH) 2 (Ar Me2 = C 6H 2Me 2) to yield [x?,rfCH 2(Ar Me2O) 2]M(PMe 3) 3H 2 (M = Mo, W), which possess agostic M - H - C interactions. NMR spectroscopic studies provide evidence that the tungsten compound is in facile equilibrium with the metalated trihydride [κ 3CH(Ar Me2O) 2]W(PMe 3) 3H 3.
