Abstract

Newly synthesized diethynylcarbazole-bridged platinum(II) complex 3,6-{ClPt(PEt3)2C[triple bond, length as m-dash]C}2-9-nBuCarb (nBuCarb = n-butylcarbazole) and terpyridyl-containing platinum(II) alkynyl complex [Pt(tBu3trpy)(C[triple bond, length as m-dash]CC6H4C[triple bond, length as m-dash]CH)]OTf were shown to serve as versatile precursors for the assembly of a novel luminescent tetranuclear platinum(II) alkynyl complex [3,6-{Pt(tBu3trpy)(C[triple bond, length as m-dash]CC6H4C[triple bond, length as m-dash]C)Pt(PEt3)2C[triple bond, length as m-dash]C}2-9-nBuCarb](OTf)2. A divergent route can also be applied to synthesize the tetranuclear complex in three steps, involving the use of trimethylsilyl protecting groups on the alkynyl ligand.
