Abstract

Complexes of the type trans-PtCl2(L)NH3 where L = PMe3 (1), PEt3 (2), and NH3 (3) co-ordinate to 18-crown-6 (18C6) and dibenzo-18-crown-6 (DB18C6) by hydrogen bonding of their NH3 ligands, forming the crystalline adducts [(1)-DB18C6], [(2)-DB18C6], [(1)2-18C6], [(2)2-18C6], and [(3)-18C6]n which also display considerable stability in solution.
