Main Group Dithiocarbamate Complexes
Dithiocarbamates, R2NC(S)S−, are highly versatile ligands towards main group metals; they can stabilise a wide variety of oxidation states and co-ordination geometries, and seemingly small modifications to the ligand can lead to significant changes in the structure/behaviour of the complexes formed. The literature on main group dithiocarbamate complexes has not been reviewed as a whole since the 1970s, despite the large number of publications that have appeared subsequently. This review focuses primarily on structural aspects of all main group dithiocarbamate complexes, covering the essential literature from 1978 to 2003.
