    • Abstract


      Coordination compounds of mercury(II) chloride, bromide, cyanide and thiocyanate with N-methylnicotinamide, a potentially bidentate ligand, have been prepared. The complexesisolated have 1∶1 (metal:ligand)stoichiometry. Molecular weight measurements in molten camphor indicate that the mercury (II) chloride and bromide complexes are monomeric. Based on conductance values, molecular weight determinations and infrared spectral data, it is inferred that in the solid state in all these complexes the metal ion has a coordination number three and is bonded to the N-methylnicotinamide via its pyridine ring nitrogen, and is terminally bonded to the halogen/pseudohalogens.
