Unexpected coordination difference in geometric-isomerism between N,S- and N,N-heterocyclic carbenes in cyclometallated platinum(II)

Abstract

The reaction of [PtII(2-phenylpyridine)(acac)] and benzothiazolium bromide yields the N,S-heterocyclic carbene ligand trans to pyridyl while, surprisingly, a very similar N,N-heterocyclic carbene coordinates predominantly trans to the cyclometallated carbon.
