The solid-state 31P CP-MAS NMR spectra of several phosphine complexes of mercury(II) with known crystal structures have been measured. In addition, some simple valence bond calculations were performed and an attempt was made to relate calculated s characters of bonding orbitals to the measured Hg-P coupling constants. The correlation predicted by an approximation to the Fermi contact term was not found.
