Reaction of the tricarbonyl{[eta]5-[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]cyclopentadienyl}molybdenum anion and dichloridodiphenylstannane affords the title compound, [MoSn(C6H5)2Cl(C9H14N)(CO)3], which exhibits a four-legged piano-stool geometry with chloridodiphenylstannyl ligands unperturbed by the pendant 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl groups. The Mo-Sn bond length [2.7584 (5) Å] and the distortion of the tetrahedral tin coordination geometry are similar to those observed in related tin-substituted tricarbonylmolybdenum and -tungsten complexes.

The synthesis of Mo(SnMe2Cl)(CO)3([eta]5-Cp) was reported by Patil & Graham (1966[Patil, H. R. H. & Graham, W. A. G. (1966). Inorg. Chem. 5, 1401-1405.]). This methodolgy was extended to prepare Mo(SnPh2Cl)(CO)3([eta]5-Cp) by Marks & Seyam (1974[Marks, T. J. & Seyam, A. M. (1974). Inorg. Chem. 13, 1624-1627.]). Triphenyltin and tricyclohexyltin derivatives of [M(CO)3([eta]5-C5H4CH2CH2NMe2)]- (M = Mo and W) were reported by Fischer et al. (2005[Fischer, P. J., Krohn, K. M., Mwenda, E. T. & Young, V. G. Jr (2005). Organometallics, 24, 1776-1779.]). The structural characterization and reaction chemistry of a variety of half-sandwich molybdenum and tungsten chlorostannyl complexes have been reported by Braunschweig et al. (2007[Braunschweig, H., Bera, H., Geibel, B., Dörfler, R., Götz, D., Seeler, F., Kupfer, T. & Radacki, K. (2007). Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. pp. 3416-3424.], 2009[Braunschweig, H., Dörfler, R., Mager, J., Radacki, K. & Seeler, F. (2009). J. Organomet. Chem. 694, 1134-1137.]). The Lewis acidity of coordinatively saturated chlorostannyl ligands has been explored by Tang et al. (2005[Tang, L.-F., Zhao, X.-M., Zou, H.-B., Song, H.-B. & Zhai, Y.-P. (2005). J. Organomet. Chem. 690, 4124-4131.]). Structural parameters that define four-legged piano-stool geometries were detailed by Kubácek et al. (1982[Kubácek, P., Hoffmann, R. & Havias, Z. (1982). Organometallics, 1, 180-188.]).
