Abstract

Reaction of trans-[Pt(NC5H4CHBu2n)(2)Cl-2] 1 with an excess of HC=CR (R = Ph, C6H4Me, C6H4NO2) affords the monomeric complex trans-[Pt(NC5H4CHBu2n)(2)(C=CR)(2)] (R = Ph 2a, C6H4Me 2b, C6H4NO2 2c), the trans arrangement of the alkynyl ligands being confirmed from spectroscopic data and by an X-ray analysis of 2c;when 1 is treated with 1 equiv, of HC=CC6H2(Me)(2)C=CH the polymer [Pt(NC5H4CHBu2n)(2)C=CC6H2Me2C=C](n) is formed, which is soluble in a range of organic solvents.
