Abstract

The psuedohalogens (ECN)(2) (E = S, Se) have been prepared by reaction of AgNCS with bromine and AgNCSe with iodine respectively. (SCN)(2) spontaneously polymerises to give polythiocyanogen a polymer of unknown structure with empirical formula (SCN)(x). A series of late transition metal complexes bearing the ambidentate psuedohalide ligands (ECN) (E = S, SO have been synthesised. In addition we have prepared a series of late transition metal complexes of the cyanodithioimidocarbonate ion [C2N2S2](2-) and the first transition metal complexes of the cyanodiselenocarbonate ion [C2N2Se2](2-).
