Abstract

Analogous hexanuclear, paddlewheel complexes are formed by reaction of AgI and CuI precursors with the new ligand 3‐tri‐methylsilyl‐2‐pyridinethiol. MS2N coordination has thus been achieved for the first time (see right, • = metal). The large Me3Si group of the ligand prevents polymerization, which is observed for complexes of the parent compound. The ligand is accessible by silylation of 2‐pyridinethiol. (Figure Presented.)
