Platinum(ii) alkyl complexes of chelating dibridgehead diphosphines P((CH2)n)3P (n = 14, 18, 22); facile cis/trans isomerizations interconverting gyroscope and parachute like adducts Academic Article uri icon


  • The dibridgehead diphosphines P((CH2)n)3P can serve either as cis or trans spanning chelate ligands. Reactions of trans PtCl2 adducts and RLi (2 equiv.) give only cis PtR2 adducts, which upon reaction with HCl (1 equiv.) revert to trans PtRCl adducts.
