Abstract

The title compounds were synthesized from MoCl2 and the appropriate commercial chlorides and their structures were solved by a combination of single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis and theoretical methods. The NH4, K and Rb compounds are essentially isostructural, and crystallize in space group Ia (No. 9) with the cell parameters (in Å) a=9.173(1), b=14.986(2), c=17.505(3), β=92.94(2)°(NH4); a=9.140(4), b=14.852(5), c=17.445(11), β=93.48(6)°(K); a=9.215(1), b=14.941(3), c=17.532(2), β=92.70(1)°(Rb); while the Cs compound crystallizes in space group P21/n (No. 14) with the cell dimensions a=9.771(3), b=12.984(4), c=21.535(4), β=90.81(3)°.
