Abstract: Three organophosphorus mercury (II) coordination compounds [Hg2(µ-X)2X2(PPh3)2] {X: I (1), Br (2), and Cl (3)} have been synthesized by the reaction of mercury (II) halides with triphenylphosphine. The prepared complexes were characterized by spectroscopic techniques as well as by elemental analysis. The crystal structure of [Hg2(µ-I)2I2(PPh3)2] (1) was obtained by single-crystal X-ray diffraction study. Crystal data for [Hg2(µ-I)2I2(PPh3)2], C36H30Hg2I4P2: Monoclinic, space group P21/c (no. 14), a = 19.2115(1…
