The reaction of 2-[3-(triethoxysilyl)propylamino]ethanethiol (LH, a) and 1-methyl-2-[3-(triethoxysilyl)propylamino]ethanethiol (LH, b) with ZnX2 and CdX2 (X = Cl, Br, I, NO3) in tetrahydrofuran (THF) or CH2Cl2 gives several complexes depending on the experimental conditions. Elemental analyses, IR, Raman, 13C[1H], 1H NMR and mass spectroscopies indicated the formation of mononuclear and dinuclear complexes. In the absence of NEt3 as proton quencher, the protonated ligands react in their zwitterionic form giving dinuclear [M(LH)X2]2 [M = Zn (1), Cd (2); LH = a, b; X = Cl, Br, I] or mononuclear M(NO3)2(LH)2 [M = Zn (5), Cd (6); LH = a] complexes.
