Reactivity of a platinum-substituted borirene

Author affiliations


We report on (i) the reactivity of the title compound trans-[Cl(PMe3)2Pt{μ-BN(SiMe3)2C[double bond, length as m-dash]C}Ph] (1), which underwent a photochemical rearrangement reaction to afford the platinum boryl complex trans-[Cl(PMe3)2PtBN(SiMe3)2C[triple bond, length as m-dash]CPh] (2), (ii) a ring-opening reaction by chemoselective boron–carbon bond cleavage resulting in the amino(vinyl)borane trans-[Cl(PMe3)2PtCH[double bond, length as m-dash]C(BClN(SiMe3)2)Ph] (3), and (iii) a Cl–Br ligand exchange on the platinum atom yielding the Br-derivate trans-[Br(PMe3)2Pt{μ-BN(SiMe3)2C[double bond, length as m-dash]C}Ph] (4). All compounds were fully characterized by multinuclear NMR spectroscopy and single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis.
