The room temperature reaction of [Co(H2O)6]Cl2 with 3-trimethylsilyl-2-pyridinethiol in methanol yields [Co(2-SC5H3N-3-SiMe3)3]. The crystal structure determination revealed the meridional ligand arrangement, as previously reported for the analogous [Co(2-SC5H4N]. Crystal data: C24H36N3Si3S3Co, monoclinic space group P21/c, a = 9.416(2), b = 29.163(4), c = 12.371(2) Å. β = 106.81(1)°, Z = 4, Dcalc = 1.23 g cm-3; structure solution and refinement based on 1032 reflections with Fo≥6o(Fo) (Mo Kα, λ = 0.71073 Å) converged at R = 0.069.
