Abstract:

Metal thiolates of the general formula MSR2 M Pb, Zn, Cd and Cl-Hg-SR R alkyl have been prepared and characterized by IR and NMR spectroscopic techniques, TGA and, in selected cases, single crystal X-ray diffraction. The metal bisthiolate compounds can be converted into the related metal sulfides by thermolyses. The solid state materials have been characterized by XRPD, SEM and, in selected cases, by particle size determination. The volatile pyrolytic co-products have been isolated and characterized by GCMS. The decomposition pathways of mercury chlorothiolates are more complicated and depend on the nature of the organic group present in Cl-Hg-SR. Metal thiolates, Uni-molecular precursors, Main group metal sulfides.
