In the title compound, [Mo(CO)3(C18H15P)(C12H8N2)] or C33H23MoN2O3P, the carbonyl groups are attached to one face of the MoC3N2P octahedron. Slight differences in the Mo-C bond lengths may be interpreted in terms of back-bonding models of electronic structure. In the crystal structure, a short C-H center dot center dot center dot O interaction (H center dot center dot center dot O = 2.34 Å) may help to establish the packing.
