Abstract

An unusual route to the maleonitrilediselenolate (mns) ligand has been discovered with the isolation of compounds that contain this ligand bound to silver (structure shown on the right) or antimony. The formation of the [As(Se)3(CH2CN)]2-anion along with possible pathways to the mns ligands is discussed.
