catena-Poly[[chlorido(methyl phenyl sulfide-κS)mercury(II)]-μ-chlorido]

Abstract

The title compound, [HgCl2(C7H8S)]n, was isolated from the reaction of MeSPh with HgCl2. The HgII atom has a distorted tetra­hedral geometry and is coordinated by one S atom and three Cl atoms. Two of the Cl atoms act as bridging ligands between the Hg atoms, forming a two-dimensional polymeric structure.

Comment

Crystals of [HgCl2(MeSPh)]n (I) were isolated from the reaction of MeSPh with HgCl2 in EtOH. The asymmetric unit of I consists of one Hg atom, MeSPh ligand and two chlorine atoms. The mercury(II) atom has distorted tetrahedral geometry and is coordinated to one sulfur atom and three chlorine atoms. Two of the chlorine atoms act as bridging ligands between the mercury atoms forming a two-dimensional polymeric structure. The Hg - Cl bond lenghts are 2.6050 (17) and 2.742 (2) Å for the bridging chlorines and 2.3429 (18) Å for the terminal chlorine, The Hg - S bond length is 2.4548 (17) Å. The bond parameters can be compared to those in [{PhS(CH2)SPh}Hg2Cl4]n where Hg atom has a similar coordination environment (Peindy et al. (2005)]

Experimental

The addition of MeSPh (0.603 g; 4.85 mmol) to HgCl2 (0.283 g: 1.04 mmol) in 10 ml EtOH gave at first a clear solution followed by precipitation of colourless crystals. Decomposition of the crystals took place upon removal of the solvent. Crystals suitable for crystal structure determination were picked from the reaction solution.

Refinement

H atoms were positioned geometrically and refined using a riding model with C—H = 0.95 - 0.98 Å and with Uiso(H) = 1.2 Ueq(C).

Special details

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.
Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
