Reaction of [Cr(NBu(t))Cl3(dme)] (dme = 1,2-dimethoxyethane) with 1,4,7-trithiacyclononane ([9]aneS3) followed by treatment with Ag(CF3SO3) leads to the isolation of [Cr(N(t)Bu)([9]aneS3)Cl2](CF3SO3), which has been characterized by X-ray crystallography. The Cr-N, average Cr-S, and average Cr-Cl distances are 1.640(4), 2.431, and 2.273 Å, respectively; the Cr-N-C angle being 173.2(4)°. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science S.A.
