Summary

The conventional approach to make mercury thiolate crystals is by a slow reaction of mercury salts with thiolates or disulfides to produce micrometer sized plate-like crystals of mercury thiolate. In this paper, the author discusses a new technique to produce such crystals - via sonication with neat thiols.
