This is the structure of bis(acetylacetonate)dioxomolybenum(VI). The sample was prepared by Inorganic Chemistry students at Otterbein. Three students who were also taking Structural Methods (CHEM 4800) then prepared high-quality crystals, (re)determined the structure, and published the structure in IUCrData.
