A new binding mode for thiosulfate in six-coordinate poly[[(1,10-phenanthroline-2N,N′)cadmium(II)]--thiosulfato]
Abstract:In the novel title six-coordinate cadmium complex, [Cd(S2O3)(C12H8N2)]n, the anion binds to three different six-coordinate cationic centres through all four external atoms, an unprecedented coordination mode for thiosulfate metal-organic complexes. This connectivity leads to strongly linked dimers, connected to form interleaved double chains, which in turn interact through remarkably short – bonds between their phenanthroline groups.
