Synthesis and characterization of novel platinum(IV) complexes with non-functionalized acetylated carbohydrates.

[PtMe3(Me2CO)3]BF4 (1) reacts in acetone with 1,2,3,4-tetraacetyl-beta-D-glucopyranose (C2), pentaacetyl-alpha-D-glucopyranose (C3), pentaacetyl-beta-D-mannopyranose (C4) and pentaacetyl-beta-D-galactopyranose (C5) to give trimethyl(carbohydrate)platinum tetrafluoroborate complexes [PtMe3L]BF4 (2-5) (2, L=C2; 3, L=C3; 4, L=C4; 5, L=C5). The platinum… CONTINUE READING
