Abstract

The X-ray structure of the crystalline complex formed between 18-crown-6 and 2 mol. equiv. of cisplatin and dimethylacetamide reveals hydrogen bonding which involves all three hydrogen atoms on both ammine ligands of cisplatin forming bonds to (i) all six oxygen atoms of 18-crown-6, (ii) one chlorine atom on a symmetry-translated cisplatin, and (iii) the carbonyl oxygen atom of dimethylacetamide.
