Single crystal X-ray structure of the compound revealed that the coordination geometry around the Cd(II) is octahedron comprising of two diethylthiourea ligands and two acetate ions acting as bidentate chelating ligands.
The modes of binding in solid state solvent-free mechanochemical of all the complexes formed involve the ligand coordination with the metal ion through the Nitrogen of the N[H.sub.2] group and nitrogren of hydrazinic band and oxygen atom from each of the two acetate ions to complete octahedral geometry.
The peaks at 1555 and 1410 [cm.sup.-1] are assigned to the antisymmetric stretching [v.sub.asym](COO) and symmetric stretching [v.sub.asym](COO) vibrations of the free acetate ions, respectively (40).
