Bis(di-sec-butyldithiophosphato)cadmium(II) forms a 2:1 adduct with hexamethylenetetramine (urotropine), which was characterized by FT-IR and NMR spectroscopy. The compound is a dinuclear complex with the cadmium atoms coordinated at two nitrogen atoms of hexamethylenetetramine cage which is the actual coordination center. The X-ray diffraction analysis of the complex reveals a distorted square pyramidal coordination of the five-coordinate cadmium atoms. At each cadmium, one dithiophosphato, group behaves as slightly anisobidentate whereas the other one is an isobidentate chelating ligand.
