Only available as helicates: Dinuclear zinc and nickel complexes bearing previously inaccessible N,S-N,S ligands have been obtained in subcomponent self-assembly reactions from complexes bearing two 2-thiolatobenzaldehyde ligands and 4,4'- diaminodiphenylmethane. Both complexes react with Pd(OAc)2 by transmetalation to give the dinuclear palladium complex (see scheme).
