The reaction of [Pt15(CO)30](2-) with increasing amounts of SnCl2 affords [Pt8(CO)10(SnCl2)4](2-) (2), [Pt10(CO)14{Cl2Sn(OH)SnCl2}2](2-) (5), [Pt6(CO)6(SnCl2)2(SnCl3)4](4-) (3), [Pt9(CO)8(SnCl2)3(SnCl3)2(Cl2SnOCOSnCl2)](4-) (4) and [Pt5(CO)5{Cl2Sn(OR)SnCl2}3](3-) (R = H, Me, Et, and (i)Pr) (1-R). 1-R and 2 have been previously described, whereas 3-5 are(More)
The new [Pt(5)(CO)(5){Cl(2)Sn(μ-OR)SnCl(2)}(3)](3-) (R = H, Me, Et, (i)Pr; 1-4) clusters contain trigonal bipyramidal (TBP) Pt(5)(CO)(5) cores, as certified by the X-ray structures of [Na(CH(3)CN)(5)][NBu(4)](2)[1]·2CH(3)CN and [PPh(4)](3)[4]·3CH(3)COCH(3). The TBP geometry, which is rare for group 10 metals, is supported by an unprecedented(More)
The anionic cluster [Pt(19)(CO)(22)](4-) (1), of pentagonal symmetry, reacts with CO and AuPPh(3)(+) fragments. Upon increasing the Au:Pt(19) molar ratio, different species are sequentially formed, but only the last two members of the series could be characterized by X-ray diffraction, namely, [Pt(19)(CO)(24)(μ(4)-AuPPh(3))(3)](-) (2) and(More)
