The previous structure report [Howie & McQuillan (1986). J. Chem. Soc. Dalton Trans. pp. 759-764] of the title compound, [Mo(C10H8N2)(C10H9N3)(CO)(3)], has been corrected. In the present structure, the precision of the Mo-C and Mo-N bond distances for the fac-MoC3N3 centre are significantly improved, and an N atom and a C-H group have been exchanged. Possible intramolecular N-H center dot center dot center dot C and C-H center dot center dot center dot N and intermolecular C-H center dot center dot center dot O interactions are described.
