Ultrasound Makes Big Crystals Of Mercury Thiolates
An international research team has devised a synthetic strategy that employs ultrasound to produce large, high-quality single crystals of mercury thiolate (HgSR2), where R = alkane (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja1056449). Mercury thiolates not only have uses in organic electronics, but they are also an interesting chemical illustration of the strong attraction between mercury and sulfur-bearing thiols. Methods typically . . .
