Abstract: The dinuclear compound, [Nb2Cl6(C2H6S)1.7(C2H6Se)1.3], features an NbIII=NbIII double bond [2.6878 (5) Å]. The molecule lies on a twofold rotation axis that passes through the middle of this bond as well as through the bridging dimethyl sulfide ligand. The NbIII ion exists in an octahedral coordination environment defined by two terminal and two bridging Cl atoms, and (CH3)2Se/(CH3)2S ligands. The (bridging) ligand lying on the twofold rotation axis is an ordered (CH3)2S ligand, whereas the terminal ones on a general position are a mixture of (CH3)2Se and (CH3)2S ligands in a 0.647 (2):0.353 (2) ratio (the methyl C atoms are also disordered).
