Abstract

Ab initio calculations on mono- and di-lithiated derivatives of thiourea predict that Li atom(s) will bridge N and S centres, leading to lengthening of the bond and shortening of one or both of the bonds in thiourea. The synthesised complex of dilithiated diphenylthiourea, [PhNPh)SLi·2HMPA]2 (1) displays many of the structural features suggested by theory, having been shown by X-ray crystallography to contain monomeric units with SLi and N(μ2Li)N bonds, these monomers then being linked by N: → Li coordinations.
