Preparation, Structure and Chemistry of a Novel, Disjoint Diradical, 4,4'-Bis(1,2,3,5-Dithiadiazolyl)

by Hicks, Robin G.; Mackinnon, Craig D.; Oakley, Richard T.; Bryan, Clinton Dave; Cordes, A. Wallace; Haddon, Robert C.

The reaction of oxamidrazone with SCl2 affords 4,4'-bis(1,2,3,5-dithiadiazolium) dichloride, which can be reduced to the corresponding bis(1,2,3,5-dithiadiazolyl) diradical; the electronic structure of the diradical is discussed, and the solid state structure, charge transfer chemistry and transport properties of the dimer [S2N2CCN2S2](2) are described.
