Mixed metal complexes of the type [Pt(k² -2-C₆R₄PPh₂) (PPh₃) (m-2-C₆R₄PPh₂)AuCl] (R ¼ H, F) can be prepared by treatment of cis-[Pt(k² -C₆R₄PPh₂)₂] with [AuCl(PPh₃)]. Under similar reaction conditions, the trans isomer of [Pt(k² -C₆R₄PPh₂)₂] is unreactive. Computational studies have been performed to provide insights into the reasons for this difference in reactivity. Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations show that formation of an AuCl adduct of [Pt(k² -2-C₆R₄PPh₂)₂] is favoured...[Show more]
