    • Abstract


      Coordination compounds formed by the interaction of mercury(II) cyanide with some bidentate ligands—ethylenediamine, N,N-diethylethylenediamine, 1,3-propanediamine, 1,5-pentanediamine, 2,2′-bipyridylamine, 1,4-dioxane, morpholine, methylpyrazine, 4,4′-bipyridyl and 4,4′-bipyridyl N,N′-dioxide—have been prepared. Stoichiometries of the complexes have been established by metal, carbon and nitrogen estimations. The complexes isolated in the solid state have been characterized byir spectroscopy down to 200 cm−1 to elucidate the metal-ligand and metal-cyanide bonding modes. Tentative stereochemistries of the complexes in the solid state are discussed.
