  • Condensations of (p-tol3P)2PtCl2 with Me3-SnCCCCSiMe3 and HCCCCSiMe3 give mono- or bis((trimethylsilyl)butadiynyl) complexes that are desilylated and elaborated by oxidative cross-couplings and homocouplings to give the title compounds trans-Cl[(p-tol3P) 2PtCCCCCCCC]mPt(P-p-tol 3)2Cl (m = 1-3).
