Electrochemical oxidation of cadmium in a solution of 4-methyl-6-trifluoromethylpyrimidine-2-thione (MeCF3-pymtH) in acetonitrile gave [Cd(MeCF3-pymt)2], whose crystal structure has been determined by X-ray diffraction. The structure of the compound consists of polymeric chains containing octahedrally cis coordinated cadmium atoms (CdN2S4), with each ligand acting in an N,S-bidentate sulfur-bridging mode. Vibrational, 1H and 13C spectra of the complex are discussed and related to the structure.
