Group 12 Thiolates: Syntheses, Characterization and Decomposition Pathways

  • Gertrud KrÄuter (a1), Virgil L. Goedken (a1), Bernhard NeumÜller (a1) and W. S. Rees (a1)


Zinc- and cadmium bis(alkylthiolate) compounds have been prepared and converted into the appropriate binary metal sulfides by thermal treatment. Several mercury chlorothiolates have been synthesized and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Their decomposition pathways are discussed. The prepared binary metal sulfides have been studied by XRPD and - in selected cases - by particle size determination. The volatile co-products have been isolated and characterized by GC/MS.
