Facile syntheses of [K([2.2.2]-cryptand)]3Ag(Se2C2(CN)2)(Se6)] (1) and [K([2.2.2]-cryptand)]2-[Ni(Se2C2(CN)2)2] (2) are achieved through reaction of polyselenides with KNH2, [2.2.2]-cryptand, and AgBF4 or Ni(dppp)Cl2 in acetonitrile. The syntheses of 2 and Ni(dppp)(Se2C2(CN)2) (3) may be achieved by reaction of 1 with NiCl2 or Ni(dppp)Cl2 in dmf. These compounds represent the first easily prepared metal-maleonitrilediselenolate derivatives.
