Cadmium metal was oxidized in the presence or N-methylisatin N(4)-cyclohexy
lthiosemicarbazone (HMeIs4Chex) in an acetonitrile solution, which produced
a complex of the formula [Cd(MeIs4Chex)(2)]. The two MeIs4Chex ligands are
at an angle close to 90 degrees from each other, and there is hydrogen bon
ding to two adjacent molecules by the anionic ligands remaining NH groups.
The complex crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2(1)/c with a = 11.
