Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

Platinum bisphosphine complexes bearing dichalcogen-derivatised naphthalene, acenaphthene or phenanthrene ligands have been prepared by either oxidative addition to zero-valent platinum species or from [PtCl2(PPhR2)] (R =Ph or Me) and the disodium or dilithium salts of the parent disulfur, diselenide or mixed S/Se species. The parent naphthalene, acenaphthene and phenanthrene chalcogen compounds were treated with either [Pt(PPh3)(4)] or [Pt(C2H4)(PMe3)(2)] (prepared in situ from [PtCl2(PMe3)(2)], ethene and sodium naphthalide or super hydride [LiBEt3H]) to give the appropriate platinum(II) species. The dilithium salts of 1,8-E-2-naphthalene (E = S or Se) prepared in situ by reduction of the E-E bond with [LiBEt3H] were treated with [PtCl2(PPh3)(2)] to give [Pt(1,8-E-2-nap)(PPh3)(2)]. The tetraoxides [Pt(1,8-(S(O)(2))(2)-nap)(PR3)(2)] (PR3 = PPh3 or PMe2Ph) were prepared in a similar metathetical manner from the appropriate [PtCl2(PR3)] complexes and the disodium salt of naphthalene 1,8-disulfinic acid (1,8-(S(O)ONa)(2)- nap). The X-ray structures of selected examples reveal bidentate coordination with the naphthalene-E-2 unit hinged (111-137degrees) with respect to the coordination plane. The naphthalene ring suffers significant distortion from planarity.
