A survey of the structures formed between zinc and cadmium 1,1-dithiolates and bipyridyl-type ligands shows that coordination polymers do form, but not always. Polymer formation is precluded owing to a variety of reasons such as the small size of zinc compared with cadmium, the strong coordinating ability of the 1,1-dithiolate ligand, steric hindrance associated with the remote organic groups of the 1,1-dithiolate ligands and, perplexingly, in the presence of hydrogen bonding functionality which appears to be competitive with dative bond formation.
