The complexes Ni6(MPDMA)12, [Ni6(MPDMAH)12]X12 X = (I, ClO4) and Pd2(MPDMA)2Cl2 (MPDMA = t-S(CH2)3N(CH3)2) have been prepared and characterized. An X-ray diffraction study shows that the structure of [Ni6(MPDMAH)12] (ClO4)12 consists of a cyclic hexanuclear array of nickel atoms linked by sulphur bridging ligands. Infrared and electronic spectra show that there is no chelation in any of the nickel complexes. However, coordination through the nitrogen atoms occurs in the palladium complex. This behaviour differs from that of the homologous β-mercaptoamine, which forms monomeric chelate complexes with both nickel and palladium. © 1984.
