"Reaction of manganese and iron thiocyanate with pyrimidine in solution at room temperature leads to the formation of the isotypic new ligand-rich 1:2 (1:2 = ratio between metal and ligand) compounds [Mn(NCS)(2)(pyrimidine)(2)](n) (1) and [Fe(NCS)(2)(pyrimidine)(2)](n) (2). Their crystal structures were determined by single crystal X-ray analysis," investigators in Kiel, Germany report.
"The metal cations are coordinated by four pyrimidine ligands, which connect them into layers, and two terminal N-bonded thiocyanato anions in a distorted octahedral arrangement. Investigations on their thermal behavior show that the complexes decompose quantitatively into the...
