Complexes of platinum(II), platinum(IV), rhodium(III) and iridium(III) containing orthometallated triphenylphosphine

Bennett, Martin; Bhargava, Suresh; Ke, Mingzhe; Willis, Anthony


Treatment of [PtCl2(SEt2)2] or [RhCl3(SEt2)3] with 2-LiC6H4PPh2 gives four-membered ring chelate arylplatinum(n) or arylrhodium(m) complexes [Pt{C6H4(PPh2)-2}3 and [Rh {C6H4(PPh2)-2}3], respectively, whereas the corresponding reaction of [IrCl3(SEt2)3] gives JrCl{C6H4(PPh2)-2}2(PPh 3)] arising from cleavage of an Ir-C6H4(PPh2) bond. The chemistry of [Pt{C6H4(PPh2)-2}2] is dominated by the lability of the Pt-P bonds, which are displaced sequentially by ligands at room temperature to give...[Show more]
