A New Process for C-Si Bond Formation from cis-Alkyl(silyl)platinum(II)Complexes
The complexes <I>cis</I>-PtR(SiHPh<SUB>2</SUB>)(PMe<SUB>2</SUB>Ph)<SUB>2</SUB> (R = Me, Et, Pr, Bu) have been found to undergo two types of C–Si bond formation process. One is a novel reaction process <I>via</I> isomerization to <I>cis</I>-PtH(SiRPh<SUB>2</SUB>)(PMe<SUB>2</SUB>Ph)<SUB>2</SUB>, and the other is C–Si reductive elimination involving prior displacement of a PMe<SUB>2</SUB>Ph ligand with diphenylacetylene added to the system.
