Abstract

Hydrogen bonding and charge‐transfer interactions stabilize the crystalline 1:1 adduct of [Pt(bpy)(NH3)2]2+[PF6] and dlbenzo‐30‐crown‐10. An X‐ray structure analysis showed that the crown ether envelopes the dication; this coordination in the second sphere, which‐as UV and 1H‐NMR data show—also exists in solution, is to a great extent made possible by interactions between the two benzene rings of the host molecule and a pyridine ring of the guest complex. (Figure Presented.)
