Abstract

The title complex (1) was synthesised by reaction of RhCl3 with 2,4,6-tri-isopropylbenzenethiol in MeCN, and it has an asymmetric dinuclear structure with two bridging thiolate ligands with η2,Rh-bound unsaturated groups formed by dehydrogenation of isopropyl substituents; the Rh-Rh bond distance is 2.756(1) Å with the RhS2Rh system bent about the S-S vector to give a butterfly configuration.
