A second polymorph of (2-thiazolidinethionato)-(triphenylphosphine)gold(I)
The title compound, [Au(C3H4NS2)(C 18H15P)], contains a thiazolidinethione ligand coordinated to an AuI atom through the S atom. A triphenylphosphine ligand completes the linear coordination geometry around the Au atom. The compound contains two molecules in the asymmetric unit and is a polymorphic form of a previously reported structure [Grant, Forward & Fackler Jr (1996). Z. Kristallogr. 211, 483-484]. The composite molecules in the two forms exhibit nearly identical bond distances and angles. © 2006 International Union of Crystallography. All rights reserved.
