Title: Structural Diversity in the Complexes of Trimeric Perfluoro- o -phenylene Mercury with Tetrathia- and Tetramethyltetraselenafulvalene

Five potential charge transfer complexes of trimeric perfluoro-o-phenylene mercury (I) with tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) and tetramethyltetraselenefulvalene (TMTSF) were grown from different solvent mixtures. The adducts (I)2·TTF (1) and I·TTF (2) were grown by slow evaporation from the 1:1 mixture of dichloromethane (CH2Cl2, DCM) and carbon disulfide (CS2). Use of the different 1:1 solvent mixtures of dichloromethane (CH2Cl2, DCM) and dichloroethane (C2H4Cl2, DCE) has led to the crystalline adducts I·TTF (3) and I·TTF·DCE (4). Adduct I.TMTSF (5) was grown by the interface crystallization on the border of two immiscible layers, ethyl acetate, and carbon disulfide. The cocrystals differ by the donor–acceptor ratio, molecular packing, and the solvent inclusion. The components in 1–5 form mixed donor–acceptor stacks. The stacks are stabilized by Hg···S and Hg···C short contacts, while the lateral interactions between stacks include F···F, CH···F, and S/Se···F short contacts.
