Dithiomalonamide [H2A, CH2(CSNH2)2] and 2,2-dimethyldithiomalonamide [H2B, C(CH3)2(CSNH2)2] can act as bidentate ligands and form stable, cationic 1∶2 complexes with general formula M2(H2L)2X2 [M=Ni2+, Pd2+, Pt2+;X=C1, Br, I; H2L=H2A, H2B] in strong acidic medium. An elaborate thermal study is presented, based on results from elemental analyses and vibrational studies (IR and Raman spectroscopy). The H2A complexes start to decompose by releasing two HX molecules whereafter a stable intermediate M(HA)2 is formed. The H2B complexes degrade in a different way; the metal-sulphur bond is broken and the ligand is expelled as a whole. Influences of the metal ion and of the halogenide counterions are investigated.

Oxathioamidates (CSNR1 R 2COOKR 1=R 2=H (A),R 1=H andR 2=CH3 (B),R 1,=R 2=CH3 (C)) can act as O, S donors and form pentaatomic ring systems with divalent metals (M(II)=Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn). Vibrational spectra and thermal analysis provide information on the amount and nature of associated water molecules. The dehydration of MA2(H2O)2 (M=Mn, Fe, Co, Ni) can be very well explained by the C.F.S.E. (crystal field stabilization energy) for weak field octahedral complexes. The complexes with ligand A and B decompose to form polymers by deprotonation on the thioamide group. The proposed structures are confirmed by the vibrational spectra. For ligand C no stable intermediates are formed during heating, degradation proceeds until metal sulphide remains.

The influence of intermolecular hydrogen bonding on some physical constants is clearly shown by comparing some thermal data for simple oxamides and thiooxamides.
