Syntheses and structures of mono-thiocyanate complexes of cadmium(II) and lead(II) containing bulky nitrogen based polydentate ligands

The reaction of [Cd2(thf)5](BF4)4 with two equiv. of Tl[HB(3-Butpz)3] (pz=pyrazolyl ring) produces the intermediate {[HB(3-Butpz3]Cd}[BF4] that reacts with potassium thiocyanate to yield [HB(3-Butpz)3]Cd(NCS) (1). The solid state structure shows that the sterically demanding 3-tert-butyl groups enfo...
