A series of Manganese and Rhenium complexes containing thiolate and thiosalicylate ligands have been prepared by the reaction of M(CO)5Br ( M= Mn, Re) with thiols and thiosalicylic acid in acetone with added silver perchlorate. Both thiolate and thiosalicylate forms either dinuclear or plynuclear metal complexes. X-ray crystallographic and spectroscopic data suggests various modes of coordination depending on the ligand and also on the metal.
