Structurally similar but charge-differentiated platinum complexes have been prepared using the bidentate phosphine ligands [Ph(2)B(CH(2)PPh(2))(2)], ([Ph(2)BP(2)], [1]), Ph(2)Si(CH(2)PPh(2))(2), (Ph(2)SiP(2), 2), and H(2)C(CH(2)PPh(2))(2), (dppp, 3). The relative electronic impact of each ligand with respect to a coordinated metal center's electron-richness… CONTINUE READING
