Electrochemical oxidation of zinc in a solution of 1-methylimidazoline-2-thione (MeImtH) in acetonitrile, gives [Zn4O(MeImt)6] whose crystal structure has been determined by X-ray diffraction. This compound contains a central oxygen atom tetrahedrally bonded to four zinc atoms, bridged by six 1-methylimidazoline-2-thionato ligands along the edges of the tetrahedron. Each zinc atom exhibits tetrahedral coordination.
