Phosphido pincer complexes of platinum: synthesis, structure and reactivity

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of platinum(II) complexes supported by the tridentate bis(phosphine)phosphido ligand bis(2-diisopropylphosphinophenyl)phosphide) [iPr–PPP] have been synthesized and characterized (1–4). X-Ray structural studies of [iPr–PPP]PtCl (1) and [iPr–PPP]PtCH3 (3) complexes show meridional [iPr–PPP] ligands around approximately square-planar platinum centers. Structural data and NMR analysis highlight a strong trans influence for the phosphido phosphorous donor, comparable to that of the anionic aryl carbon of the classic PCP pincer complexes. A series of thermally stable [PPP]Pt(IV) compounds, including [PPP]Pt(CH3)2X [X = I (5) and SbF6 (6)], were also synthesized. The study of the binding affinity of SO2 and NO to complex 1 has also been addressed.
