Abstract

A series of A-frame Pt(II) acetylide complexes [Pt2(μ-dppm)2(μ-C≡CR)(C≡CR) 2]+ (R = C6H5, C6H4OMe-P, C6H4OEt-P, C6H4Et-p, Bp, tBu) have been isolated and shown to exhibit strong luminescence in both the solid state and in fluid solution. All these A-frame acetylide complexes have been found to exhibit fluxional properties. The free energies of activation for the fluxional process of selected Pt(II) A-frame acetylide complexes have been determined.
