Abstract

Potassium hydride reacts with HSC6H2Pri3-2,4,6 (HSR) in THF or thf-tmen (tmen = N,N,N′,N′-tetramethylethylenediamine) to afford the first discrete, hexameric potassium thiolates [{K(SR)}2{K(thf)(SR)}2{K(thf)2(SR)} 2] 3 and [{K(SR)}2{K(thf)(SR)}2{K(tmen)(SR)}2] 4·thf, exhibiting an unusual box-shaped structure with three different coordination spheres for the three independent potassium atoms.
