Bis{(2-diphenylphosphino)phenyl}mercury: A P-donor ligand and precursor to mixed metal�mercury (d 8 �d 10 ) cyclometalated complexes containing 2-C 6 H 4 PPh 2 .

Bennett, Martin; Contel-Ferdandez, Maria; Hockless, David; Welling, Lee; Willis, Anthony


Treatment of HgCl2 with 2-LiC6H4PPh2 gives [Hg(2-C6H4PPh2)2] (1), whose phosphorus atoms take up oxygen, sulfur, and borane to give the compounds [Hg{2-C6H4P(X)Ph2}2] [X = O (3), S (4), and BH3 (5)], respectively. Compound 1 functions as a bidentate ligand of wide, variable bite angle that can span either cis or trans coordination sites in a planar complex. Representative complexes include [HgX2·1] [X = Cl (6a), Br (6b)], cis-[PtX2·1] [X = Cl (cis-7), Me (9), Ph (10)], and trans-[MX2·1] [X =...[Show more]
