Thiometallates of the Group-eight Metals


RHODIUM III, palladium II, iridium III and platinum IV form simple thiometallates. There is some evidence that iron II, cobalt II, nickel II, ruthenium and osmium (both possibly IV) also form such compounds. Palladium, platinum and iridium also form poly thiometallates.
