Molybdenocene (d2) complexes containing bridged (XMe2) cyclopentadienyl ligands, [(C5H4)2XMe2MoH3]+ can exist in two conformations, dihydrogen/hydride (H2/H) and trihydride (H3). Based on the Car–Parinello molecular dynamics simulations, the size of bridging substituent (XMe2, X = C, Si, Ge, Sn, Pb) plays a crucial role in determining dihydrogen/hydride [RIGHTWARDS ARROW] trihydride equilibrium. In addition, ETS-NOCV and QTAIM bonding analyses are performed to understand the origin of dynamic behavior of these complexes.
