Mo carbonyl complexes with mixed N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC)/phosphane ligands and those with pure NHC and phosphane ligands are compared. Whereas the σ-donor strengths of phosphane and carbene groups are comparable, the π-acceptor interactions of the carbene moieties are exactly canceled by π-donor interactions.
