Abstract

The use of two new highly sterically bulky α-diimine ligands for the stabilization of neutral, monomeric platinum(II) hydroxo complexes is described. Halide abstraction from LPtCl 2 complexes of these ligands in the presence of water, followed by deprotonation of the cationic aquo complex, leads to LPt(OH)Cl and LPt(OH) 2. The latter can be reprotonated with HNTf 2 to yield a highly fluxional hydroxoaquoplatinum(II) cation.
