Abstract

Reaction of α-keto stabilized sulfur ylide (Me)2SCHC(O)C6H4-p-CN (Y) with HgX2 (X = Cl, Br, and I) led to the formation of new dinuclear products of the type [HgX2(Y)]2 (X = Cl (1), Br (2), and I (3)). Furthermore, the reaction of the corresponding sulfur ylide (Y) with Hg(NO3)2·H2O in equimolar ratio, using methanol as a solvent, was shown to produce the polynuclear complex [(Y)Hg(NO3)2]n (4). The obtained compounds were characterized using elemental analysis, IR, 1H and 13C NMR techniques. The structures of compounds Y and 1 were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. Also, in order to confirm the crystalline nature of complexes 1–3, powder XRD pattern was used. ..
