Abstract

Complexes of trimethylsilyl substituted pyridine-2-thiol with rhenium and rhodium have been prepared and structurally characterized. The reaction of methyltrioxorhenium with 3-trimethylsilylpyridine-2-thiol in toluene at 0 °C affords dark green plates of MeReO( η2-2-SC5H3N-3-SiMe3)2 (4). The reaction of [Cp *RhCl2]2 with 3-trimethylsilylpyridine-2-thiol in THF, followed by extraction in hexanes and recrystallization yields Cp *Rh( η2-2-SC5H3N-3-SiMe3)( η1-2-SC5H3N-3-SiMe3) (5). Crystal data: 4: monoclinic, P21/c, a= 12.898(3), b =13.660(3), c = 13.192(3) Å, β = 97.58(1)°, V = 2303(1) Å3, Z = 4, Dcalc= 1.010 g cm-3; structure solution and refinement based on 2297 reflections converged at a conventional residual of 0.0465. 5: orthorhombic, Pna21, a = 8.579(2), 6 = 23.315(5), c = 15.341 (3) Å, V = 3068(2) Å3, Z = 4, Dcalc = 1.305 g cm-3; 1455 reflections, R = 0.0572.
