Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of thermally stable N-heterocyclic copper–chalcogenolate complexes of the general formula [(IPr)Cu–ESiMe3] (IPr = 1,3-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-ylidene; E = S, Se, Te) have been prepared from [(IPr)CuOAc] and E(SiMe3)2 at low temperature. The reaction of [(IPr)Cu–SSiMe3] with mercuric(II) acetate affords the heterometallic [{(IPr)CuS}2Hg] complex containing two (IPr)Cu–S fragments to a central Hg(II).
