Is 2.07 A a record for the shortest Pt-S distance? Revision of two reported X-ray structures.


The comparison of the very similar compounds (Ph(3)P)(2)Pt(mu-S)(2)Pt(PPh(3))(2) (1) and (Ph(2)PyP)(2)Pt(mu-S)(2)Pt(PPh(2)Py)(2) (2) raises intriguing questions about the reliability of the reported Pt(2)S(2) core in 1, where the Pt-S bonds are the shortest ever reported. Also, the trans-annular S...S separation of 2.69 A is surprisingly shorter in 1 than… (More)
