The butyl and isopropyl derivatives (4I, 5Br) of chiral pool derived bis-imidazolium dehydrohexitol salts have been prepared. The ditopic N-heterocyclic carbenes 4 and 5 form dinuclear Ag(I) and Pt(II) complexes. All compounds were fully characterised by multinuclear NMR spectroscopy. The bis-imidazolium salt 4I and platinum complexes cis-[Pt2(μ-2)(dmso)2Cl4] and cis-[Pt2(μ-4)(dmso)2Cl4] were characterised by X-ray crystallography. In the case of the Pt(II) complexes, the carbene ring is positioned in a sterically preferred orientation, approximately perpendicular to the platinum coordination plane. The 1H, 13C, 15N and 195Pt NMR spectra of the platinum complexes show the presence of rotamers due to hindered rotation about the carbene–metal bond.
