Methanethiolatomercury(II) acetate dissolves in
water to a form conducting solutions. Mercury-sulphur stretching vibrations in mercuryII) thiolates Hg(SR)2 occur in the range 371 (or 405)-172 cm-1, and Raman spectra of aqueous solutions of MeSHg02CMe and related complexes have an intense, broad, strongly polarized band
in the range 277-253 cm-1. With the polarized band assigned as a totally symmetric mercury-sulphur stretching mode the ions containing mercury are assumed to have
structure with tetrahedral coordination and a centre
of symmetry between mercury atoms. Similar sulphur
bridging occurs in polymeric bis(tert-butylthiolato)mercury(II)
