A new cadmium-thiocyanate complex, namely catena-poly[1-carboxymethyl-4-(dimethylamino)pyridinium [cadmium(II)-tri-μ-thiocyanato-κ(4)N:S;κ(2)S:N] [[[4-(dimethylamino)pyridinium-1-acetate-κ(2)O,O']cadmium(II)]-di-μ-thiocyanato-κ(2)N:S;κ(2)S:N]], {(C9H13N2O2)[Cd(NCS)3][Cd(NCS)2(C9H12N2O2)]}n, was synthesized by the reaction of 4-(dimethylamino)pyridinium-1-acetate, cadmium nitrate tetrahydrate and potassium thiocyanide in aqueous solution. In the crystal structure, two types of Cd(II) atoms are observed in distorted octahedral coordination...

A new cadmium dicyanamide complex, poly[tetramethylphosphonium [μ-chlorido-di-μ-dicyanamido-κ(4)N(1):N(5)-cadmium(II)]], [(CH3)4P][Cd(NCNCN)2Cl], was synthesized by the reaction of tetramethylphosphonium chloride, cadmium nitrate tetrahydrate and sodium dicyanamide in aqueous solution. In the crystal structure, each Cd(II) atom is octahedrally coordinated by four terminal N atoms...
