Abstract

The reactions of dinuclear [Pt2(4-RC6H4)4(μ-SEt2)2] (R = Me or F), or mononuclear [Pt(4-RC6H4)2(SMe2)2] (R = Me or H), platinum(II) compounds with imines of the general formula 2-X,6-YC6H3CH[double bond, length as m-dash]NCH2Ph (X = Br, Y = F; X = Cl, Y = F; X = Br, Y = H) produced seven-membered [C,N]-platinacycles. The reaction consists of the initial formation of cyclometallated platinum(IV) compounds followed by a three step process: reductive elimination, isomerisation of the resulting non-cyclometallated intermediate and a final cycloplatination process. Combined 1H NMR and UV-Vis kinetico-mechanistic studies indicated that the rate determining step of the process depends on the nature of the aryl-Pt ligand (phenyl, p-tolyl or p-fluorophenyl).
