Oxidative additions of cyclo-octasulfur and cyclo-octaselenium to the cobalt(II) complex of 1,3-bis(dimethylphosphino)propane (dmpp): Crystal structures and spectroscopic properties of [Co(s2O)(dmpp)2]PF6 and [Co(Se2)(dmpp)2]BF4

[Co(S2O-κ2S and Se2)(dmpp)2]+ complexes were prepared and characterized by X-ray analyses and UV - vis spectra to have side-on-bonded S2O2- and Se22- moietes. The analogous [Co(S2O-κ2S(depe)2]+ (depe = 1,2-bis(diethylphosphino)ethane) and [Co(Se2)(dmpe)2]+ (dmpe = 1,2-bis(dimethylphosphino)ethane) complexes were also prepared.
