Dimerization of the trinuclear mercury(II) complex [(o-C(6)F(4)Hg)(3)*mu(3)-acetone] via mercurophilic interactions. Academic Article uri icon


  • In the crystalline state, the trinuclear mercury(II) complex [(o-C(6)F(4)Hg)(3)*mu(3)-acetone] forms cofacial dimers which are held by two mercurophilic interactions of 3.51 A. In this form, the complex displays an intense photoluminescence with a sharp emission centered at 480 nm.
