Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

The synthesis of platinum bisphosphine complexes of biphenyl-2,2'-dichalcogenates and the oxides of dibenzo[1,2]dithiin and related ligand systems by oxidative addition to [Pt-(PPh3)(4)] is reported. We also describe the synthesis of a new compound, di-benzothiophen-4-yldiselenide and its simple platinum complex (obtained by oxidative addition). All complexes have been fully characterised, principally by using multinuclear NMR spectroscopy and in six cases by means of single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies. The majority are simple S/S or Se/Se complexes, however the addition of dibenzo[1,2]dithin trioxide to [Pt(PPh3)(4)] gives a bimetallic system, [Pt-[2-[S(O)],2'[S(O)(2)]-biphen](PPh3)](2), containing a central Pt2S2O2 core in which the ligand behaves as a tridentate S,S,O donor.
