Molecular structure of (diethyldithiocarbomoyl)diphenylthiophosphinate

  • 19 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


X-Ray study of (diethyldithiocarbomoyl)diphenylthiophosphinate was carried out. AZ-conformation of the diethyldithiocarbomoyl ligand, which results in a short nonvalent intramolecular P...S contact (3.315 Å), is realized in the molecule. Steric hindrances in the molecule increase the P-S-C bond angle to 106.39°.
