Three tetrathiolate (tetrathiafulvalenetetrathiolate, ethylenetetrathiolate, and butadienetetrathiolate) nickel polymers are prepared. The polymers contain mixed valence Ni ions and are ESR active based on low-spin d8 Ni (III) species. Magnetic susceptibility measurement in the range of 30-60 K suggests and antiferromagnetic interaction between the Ni ions in the polymers. Below 30K a weak ferromagnetic interaction is observed. Chemically oxidized polymers are ESR inactive, while electrical conductivity is greatly enhanced.
