General description

Mercury(II) bromide (HgBr2) affords 1:1 adducts on reaction with N,N,N′,N′- tetramethyl-o-phenylenediamine. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies of these adducts have been reported. It forms complexes by reacting with 3,12-dimethylbenzo[a]quinoxalino[2,3-c]phenazine ligand.

Application

Mercury(II) bromide (HgBr2) may be used in the preparation of mononuclear [Hg(L1)Br2] and 1D polymer [Hg2(L2)Br4]n [L1 = (N,N-diethyl,N′-(pyridin-2-yl)formylidene)ethane-1,2-diamine and L2 = (N,N-diethyl,N′-(pyridin-2-yl)benzylidene)ethane-1,2-diamine]. It may also be used as a promoter in the glycoslyation reaction of alcohols.

In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, disruption of the YCF1 gene increases the sensitivity of cell growth to mercury. Transformation of the resulting ycf1 null mutant with a plasmid harbouring YCF1 under the control of the GAL promoter largely restores the wild-type resistance...
