The dimeric compound [(eta-Bu2Sn)S2N2](2) is readily prepared by addition of eta-Bu2SnCl2 to a liquid ammonia/[S4N3][Cl] reaction mixture. Reaction of [eta-Bu2SnS2N2](2) with mono and dimeric organometallic M(III) (M=Rh, Ir) complexes bearing Cp* ligands (Cp* = 1,2,3,4,5-pentamethyicyclopentadienyl) and M(II) (M = Ru, Os) phosphine complexes containing a cis arrangement of chlorides gives compounds with MS2N2 metallacycles.
