Dimetallic compounds [(P-P)M(S(2)C(6)H(2)S(2))M(P-P)] (M = Ni, Pd; P-P = chelating bis(phosphine), 3a-3f) are prepared from O=CS(2)C(6)H(2)S(2)C=O or (n)Bu(2)SnS(2)C(6)H(2)S(2)Sn(n)Bu(2), which are protected forms of 1,2,4,5-benzenetetrathiolate. Selective monodeprotections of O=CS(2)C(6)H(2)S(2)C=O or (n)Bu(2)SnS(2)C(6)H(2)S(2)Sn(n)Bu(2) lead to(More)
High yielding syntheses of 1-(ferrocenylmethyl)-3-mesitylimidazolium iodide (1) and 1-(ferrocenylmethyl)-3-mesitylimidazol-2-ylidene (2) were developed. Complexation of 2 to [{Ir(cod)Cl}2] (cod=cis,cis-1,5-cyclooctadiene) or [Ru(PCy3)Cl2(=CH-o-O-iPrC6H4)] (Cy=cyclohexyl) afforded 3 ([Ir(2)(cod)Cl]) and 5 ([Ru(2)Cl2(=CH-o-O-iPrC6H4)]), respectively.

The reaction of P4S10 with acyloins, RC(O)CH(OH)R, in refluxing dioxane, followed by the addition of alkylating agents, forms dithiolene thiophosphoryl thiolate compounds, (R2C2S2)P(S)(SR'), which are readily isolated and purified. The compounds that have been prepared and identified spectroscopically are those with R = p-anisyl, R' = Me (1); R = p-anisyl,(More)
A new, high yield synthesis of [Ni(S(2)C(2)Me(2))(2)] (3) is described using 4,5-dimethyl-1,3-dithiol-2-one, Me(2)C(2)S(2)CO (1), as dithiolene ligand precursor. Reaction of (Me(2)C(2)S(2))Sn(n)Bu(2), 2, with WCl(6) produces tris(dithiolene) [W(S(2)C(2)Me(2))(3)] (6) and demonstrates the potential synthetic utility of this compound in metallodithiolene(More)
The dipalladium compound [{(adt)Pd}(2)(μ-tpbz)] (1) (adt = bis(p-anisyl)-1,2-ethylenedithiolate, tpbz = 1,2,4,5-tetrakis(diphenylphosphino)benzene) has been synthesized from [{Cl(2)Pd}(2)(μ-tpbz)] by transmetalation employing (adt)SnMe(2). The cyclic voltammogram (CV) of 1 reveals reversible oxidation waves at 0.00 V and +0.50 V (vs [Fc](+)/Fc) with current(More)
Controlled base hydrolysis of one or both of the protected 1,2-dithiolene chelates of 1,3,5,7-tetrathia- s-indacene-2,6-dione (OCS 2C 6H 2S 2CO) enables the stepwise synthesis of di- and trimetallic complexes with 1,2,4,5-benzenetetrathiolate as the connector. Treatment of OCS 2C 6H 2S 2CO with MeO (-), followed by [NiBr 2(dcpe)] [dcpe =(More)
A novel 1,3,4-substituted 1,2,3-triazolium salt was found to function as an effective precursor for the synthesis of the first structurally characterized cationic silver(I) and ruthenium(II)carbene complexes of overall 1:2 ligand-to-metal stoichiometry. The Ag(I) complex crystallized in the form of an eight silver atom-containing cluster, whereas the Ru(II)(More)
The homoleptic bis(dithiolene) complexes [M(S(2)C(2)R(2))(2)](2) (M = Fe, Co; R = p-anisyl) undergo two successive reductions to form anions that display [M(S(2)C(2)R(2))(2)](2)(2-) <--> 2[M(S(2)C(2)R(2))(2)](1-) solution equilibria. The neutral dimers react with Ph3P to form square pyramidal [M(Ph(3)P)(S(2)C(2)R(2))(2)](0). Voltammetric measurements upon(More)
The crystal structures of 4,5-bis(bromomethyl)-1,3-dithiol-2-one, C(5)H(4)Br(2)OS(2), (I), and 4,5-bis[(dihydroxyphosphoryl)methyl]-1,3-dithiol-2-one, C(5)H(8)O(7)P(2)S(2), (II), occur with similar unit cells in the same monoclinic space group. Both molecules reside on a twofold symmetry axis coincident with the C=O bond, so that the substituents in the 4-(More)
