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.)
