In the construction of heterobimetallic coordination polymers based on dithiocarbamato–carboxylate (DTCC ligands), platinum as a thiophilic metal center can be replaced by the cheaper nickel or palladium. The compounds Zn[Pd(HL)2] and Zn2[M(L)2] (M = Ni, Pd; L = {SSC-N(CH2COO)2}3−) were prepared in a sequential approach starting from K3(L). The products were characterized by IR and NMR spectroscopy, thermal analyses, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The products decompose under nitrogen between 300 and 400 °C. Zn[Pd(HL)2] · 6H2O forms polymeric chains in the solid state, and the Zn2[M(L)2] · 14H2O (M = Ni, Pd) exhibit two-dimensional polymeric structures, each being isotypic with the respective Zn/Pt analogs. While the carboxylate groups in all these products are coordinated to zinc in a κO-monodentate mode, a structural variant of Zn2[Ni(L)2] having κOO′-briding carboxylate groups was also obtained. Exchange of the metal sites in the two Ni/Zn compounds was not observed, and these compounds are therefore diamagnetic. View Full-Text
