1-(2-Hydroxyethyl)imidazolidine-2-thione (1) was obtained as a product from an in situ reaction between N-(2-hydroxyethyl)ethylenediamine, carbon disulfide, potassium hydroxide, and di(4-fluorobenzyl)tin dichloride. Compound 1 was characterized by IR, UV, 1H, 13C{1H}, and 2D (COSY, NOESY, HSQC, and HMBC) NMR spectroscopies. The cyclic molecular structure was confirmed by single crystal X-ray crystallography which showed the five-membered ring to be non-planar and the π-electron density to be localized over the CN2S chromophore. In the crystal, thioamide–N–HO(hydroxy) and hydroxy–O–HS(thione) hydrogen bonds lead to supramolecular layers in the bc-plane. Full article

The synthesis, spectroscopic characterization and X-ray crystal structure of the title compound, (4-tolyl)3PAu[SC(O-i-Pr)=NC6H4NO2-4] (1) are described. Spectroscopy exhibited the expected features confirming the formation of the compound. The molecular structure of 1 confirms the expected linear P–Au–S coordination geometry defined by thiolate-S and phosphane-P atoms. The nearly 7° deviation from linearity is ascribed to the close approach of the imine-bound phenyl group, indicative of a semi-localized Auπ(arene) interaction. The three-dimensional molecular packing is consolidated by methyl- and tolyl-C–HO(nitro) and tolyl-C–Hπ(tolyl) interactions. Full article

The tris(2-cyanoethyl)phosphine (tcep) complex [RuCl2{P(CH2CH2CN)3}(η6-p-cymene)] (p-cymene = p-CH3C6H4iPr) was synthesised by the bridge-splitting reaction of the chlorido-dimer [RuCl2(η6-p-cymene)]2 with tcep. The complex was characterised by a single-crystal X-ray structure determination as well as NMR spectroscopy, ESI mass spectrometry, and microelemental analysis. X-ray crystallography shows the ruthenium atom is coordinated by p-cymene in a η6-fashion, two chlorides and the phosphorus atom of the tcep ligand with the donor set defining a distorted octahedral geometry. The ESI mass spectrometry study reveals that the complex readily forms negative ions [M + Cl] and [2M + Cl] by association with a chloride ion. Full article
