The crystal structure of the title compound has been determined from X-ray diffractometer data by the heavy-atom method and refined by least squares to R 0.060 for 2 013 observed reflections. Crystals are orthorhombic, space group Pcab, a = 15.903(5), b = 13.297(2), c = 12.925(2) Å, Z = 8. Mo-As is 2.533(2), and the Mo-C(alkyl) 2.35(1) Å. The η5-cyclopentadienyl group occupies an apical position in the pseudo-square-pyramidal complex.
