The Preparation, Characterization and X-ray Structural Analysis of Tetrakis[1-Methyl-3-(2-Propyl)-2(3H)-Imidazolethione]Cadmium(II) Hexafluorophosphate
Chemistry and Biochemistry
A new compd., [Cd(mipit)4][PF6]2 was synthesized and characterized via std. solid and soln. state methods including single crystal x-ray crystallog. (mipit = 1-methyl-3-(2-propyl)-2(3H)-imidazolethione). The title compd. crystallizes in tetragonal space group I41/a with a 12.478(2), b 12.478(2), c 28.806(6) Å, and Z = 4. The complex is a high melting, colorless solid that has a distorted tetrahedral CdS4 coordination geometry. TGA results for the title compd. as well as for another potential CdS synthon and two potential CdSe synthons are reported.
