Abstract

The benzo-fused dithia-chloro-arsole derivative C6H4S2AsCl (1) is found to crystallise in the triclinic space group P[1 with combining macron] with 17 molecules in the asymmetric unit whereas the tolyl derivative, MeC6H3S2AsCl (2) is polymorphic with the α-phase crystallising in the monoclinic space group P21/c with a single molecule in the asymmetric unit and the β-phase adopting a triclinic structure with two molecules in the asymmetric unit. Reaction of these dithia-chloro-arsole derivatives with LiN(SiMe3)2 in a 3 : 1 mole ratio afforded the unique paddlewheel structure (MeC6H4S2As)3N (4).
