In its crystal structure the Co cations are connected by pairs of μ-1,3-bridging thiocyanato ligands into dimers that are further connected into layers by single anionic ligands. DTA-TG measurements of Co(NCS)2(4-acetyl-pyridine)4 (1) led to the formation of 3/I. In contrast, when the hydrate Co(NCS)2(4-acetyl-pyridine)2(H2O)2 (2) is decomposed, a mixture of 3/I and a thermodynamically metastable form 3/II is obtained. Read More
