Mehta, Goverdhan and Gagliardini, Vanessa and Schaefer, Carsten and Gleiter, Rolf (2003) Thiabowls: synthesis, molecular structure and the solid state architecture of tetrathia--peristylane. In: Tetrahedron Letters, 44 (52). pp. 9313-9316.
Synthesis of tetrathia--peristylane, the first thiabowl, from the dimer of cyclooctatetraene has been accomplished. The X-ray crystal structure of the tetrathiabowl indicates significant departure from the expected C4v symmetry and in the solid state it exhibits a multi-columnar arrangement and a novel ‘self-inclusion’ phenomenon, directed by a network of S···S and CH···S interactions.
