Abstract

Two crystal structures of tris(azolyl)phosphines, PR3 [R′ = 1-methylimidazol-2-yl (1) or R′′ = 4-methylthiazol-2-yl (2)], and the crystal structure of the sulfurisation product of 2, R′′3PS (3), were determined. All compounds crystallise in polar space groups, 1 in the orthorhombic space group Pna21 with cell parameters a = 13.9779(15) Å, b = 9.2492(10) Å and c = 10.2439(11) Å; 2 in the trigonal space group, R3c, with a = 15.2383(10) Å and c = 10.5882(13) Å and 3 in the orthorhombic space group, Cmc21, with a = 13.466(3) Å, b = 9.308(2) Å and c = 12.207(3) Å.

Graphical Abstract

This article presents two crystal structures of tris(azolyl)phosphines and one of a tris(thiazolyl)phosphine sulfide, a compound which show potential for wide application in coordination chemistry due to their multidentate nature.

Keywords
