Abstract

In the title compound, [Mo(CO)2(phen)2] (phen = C12H8N2), the Mo atom adopts a cis-MoC2N4 geometry. The C-Mo-C angle of 88.0 (3)° is close to its ideal, undistorted value and the dihedral angle between the phen mean planes is 84.79 (9)°. A C-HO bond and various pi-pi stacking interactions [centroid-centroid separation = 3.472 (3)-3.890 (4) Å] may help to establish the packing.
