Synthesis and Crystallographic Characterization of a Novel Platinocycle

Abstract

The efficient synthesis and characterization of the trans-platinum complex (Ph3P)2Pt(C25H13N) by coupling the dialkyne 3,5-bis-(2-ethynyl-phenylethynyl)pyridine with cis-PtCl2(PPh3)2 is described. The X-ray crystal structure shows that the platinum center is essentially square planar with the two phosphine ligands mutually perpendicular to the planar organic ligand.
