The facile synthesis of a new 6-chloroaminobenzothiazole-functionalised phosphane and its O, S and Se analogues is described. This anionic phosphorus(V) ligand coordinates to a potassium metal centre in two unusual modes: a κ3-N2E tridentate (E = O) or κ2-N2 bridging (E = S) mode leading to unique 1D polymeric chain motifs. In contrast, the deprotonated phosphane sulfide or selenide κ2-NE chelates to a range of late transition metal fragments.
