[MoS4]2and its 1:1 and 1:2 CuCN adducts [(CN)CuS2MoS2]2−and [(CN)CuS2MoS2Cu(CN)]2−each exhibit electrochemically reversible one-electron reductions in MeCN at fast scan rates (>500 mV s−1). At lower scan rates, the reduced adduct species are unstable to dissociation of CuCN, leading to interconversion of the three anions. The tungsten analogues show similar properties.
