Formation and structure of two luminescent salts of [Au(SCSN3)2]- obtained through the [2 + 3] cyclization of carbon disulfide and azide ion.


The colorless, two-coordinate gold(i) complex, [(H2O)3Na][Au(SCSN3)2], has been synthesized through the [2 + 3] cyclic reaction of carbon disulfide and sodium azide in the presence of the labile complex (tht)AuCl. Metathesis of [(H2O)3Na][Au(SCSN3)2], with tetra(phenyl)arsonium chloride produced colorless needles of (Ph4As)[Au(SCSN3)2]. The structure of… (More)
