The syntheses of the first reported p-block complexes of the bithiazole moiety are reported, namely [(tBuBTz)BBr2][Br] (3), and [(PhBTz)BBr2][Br] (4) (tBuBTz = 4,4′-di-tert-butyl-2,2′- bithiazole and PhBTz = 4,4′-diphenyl-2,2′-bithiazole). Compounds 3 and 4 were prepared via reaction of equimolar quantities of the appropriate bithiazole ligand with BBr3. The molecular structures of 3, and the known compound PhBTz (2) were established using single-crystal X-ray diffraction techniques.
