The title compound, methylene bis[bis(N,N-diethylamino)-carbeniumdithiocarboxylate] pentachlorooxorheniura, (C21-H42N4S4)[ReCl5O], is the result of an unusual dimerization of the ligand bis(N,N-diethylamino)carbeniumdithiocarboxylate [(Et2N) 2C2S2] upon reaction with [ReOCl 3(PPh3)2] in chloroform under reflux conditions. The compound was obtained as a dicationic moiety, with the molecular [ReOCl5]2- anion providing the charge compensation. The planes of the carbenium and thiocarboxylate moieties are nearly perpendicular to one another and the backbone C-C bond length in the N2CCS2 group is the same as a normal C-C single-bond length.
