Abstract

Reactions of [Pt(PCy3)2] (Cy = cyclohexyl) with group 12 metal dihalides have afforded the novel metal only Lewis pair (MOLP) complexes, [(Cy3P)2Pt→MX2] (M = Zn or Cd, X = Br or I), or the oxidative addition product, trans-[(Cy3P)2(I)PtHgI]. The zinc complex represents the first MOLP to contain an unsupported Pt→Zn linkage.
