Abstract

The binuclear zinc (II) complex Zn2[(n-Bu)2NCSS]4 has been prepared, and its crystal and molecular structure have been determined by x-ray diffraction. The crystal is monoclinic, space group C2/c, with a=23.329(3)Å, b=17.090(2)Å, c=16.115(2)Å, α =90°, β=127.560(10)°, γ=90°, z=4, V=5039.1(11)Å3, F(000)=2016, R=0.0450, and Rw=0.1192. The crystal structure shows that two S-N-S atom chains, belonging to the different dibutyldithiocarbamate ligands, bridge two zinc (II) ions. Each zinc (II) ion coordinates to four S atoms. The coordination geometry around the zinc (II) is a tetrahedron, however, the coordination sphere of two zinc ions in the dimer is best described as a distorted octagon. The X-ray photoelectron spectra, IR and UV data have been used to study the structure and spectra properties of the complex.
