Metal-catalyzed "on-demand" production of carbonyl sulfide from carbon monoxide and elemental sulfur.


The group 6 molybdenum(II) cyclopentadienyl amidinate (CPAM) bis(carbonyl) complex [Cp*Mo{N(iPr)C(Ph)N(iPr)}(CO)2] (Cp*=η(5)-C5Me5) serves as a precatalyst for the high-yielding photocatalytic production of COS from CO and S8 under near-ambient conditions (e.g., 10 psi, 25 °C). Further documented is the isolation and structural characterization of several… (More)
