owing to the relation of the

lattice. Adjacent 1D

chains along the

glide plane, and hence the two PtS

planes of diplatinum units in the neighboring 1D chains twist in opposite

directions. It is noteworthy that the arrangement of neighboring 1D chains

along the

S contact distances are 3.812 and 3.847

relatively close to the van der Waals contact distance between sulfur atoms

(3.60

to the

Therefore, one-dimensionality of 2 is enhanced by the introduction of the ethyl

group into dithiocarboxylato ligand instead of the methyl group. Interchain
