Epub 2016 Feb 4.To investigate the effect of X in ambiphilic compounds BiX(o-PPh2-C6H4)2, PBiP-X, on metallophilic Pt-Bi interactions in its PtCl2 complexes two new derivatives PBiP-Me and PBiP-C6F5 were synthesized. Reaction with dichloro(1,5-cyclooctadiene)platinum(II) led to the platinum(II) complexes [PtCl2(PBiP-Me)], 3, and [PtCl2(PBiP-C6F5)], 4, which together with the halide [PtCl2(PBiP-Cl)], 2, reported previously, establish a series of related PBiP-X complexes differing only in X.
