Mononuclear and binuclear complexes of platinum(0) containing (alkynyl)phenylsilanes

Bennett, Martin; Cobley, Christopher; Hockless, David; Klettke, Thomas


Reaction of bis(cycloocta-1,5-diene)platinum(0) with the (alkynyl)phenylsilanes Ph3SiC2But, Ph2Si(C2But)2 and PhSi(C2But)3 gives, respectively, [Pt(Ph3SiC2But)2] (1b), [Pt{Ph2Si(C2But)2}]2 (2b), and [Pt {PhSi(C2But)3}]2 (4b), which contain zerovalent platinum atoms coordinated by two alkyne units. Spectroscopic data indicate that (2b) and (4b) contain two PtC4 and two SiC4 tetrahedra joined at the corners. X-Ray crystallography shows that complex (4b) is isostructural and isomorphous with the...[Show more]
