Abstract: A series of {Pt2HgS2}, {Pt2Hg2S2} and {Pt4HgS4} complexes, vfc. [(Ph3P)4Pt2(u3-S) 2HgCl2] 2, [(Ph3P)4Pt2(μ3-S) 2-Hg(PPh3)]X2 [X = Cl (3a) or PF6 (3b)], [HgPt4PPhMij-SMX, [X = PF6, (4a) or ClO4 (4b)], [Pt2(Ph3P)4(μ3-S) 2Hg2-(u-Cl)2Cl2] 5, [(Ph3P)4Pt2(μ3-S) 2Hg2(u-Cl)2(PPh3) 2][PF6]2 6 and [(Ph3P)4Pt2(μ3-S)2Hg 2(NO3)JX2 [X = NO3 (7a) or PF6 (7b)] have been synthesized from [Pt2(μ-S)2(PPh3)4] 1 with the appropriate mercury(n) compounds through 1:1,1:2 and 2:1 Lewis acid-base additions. Formation of the major product is governed largely by the stoichiometric quantity of the substrates. Reaction intermediates can be isolated and characterized. Their conversions into the final products have been verified. Single-crystal X-ray crystallography on 2,3b, 4b, 5 and 6 revealed a range of PtlI/Hgumetal sulfide cores with different nuclearities. V.T. 31P-{1H} NMR study of 3b showed a rapid migration of the [Hg(PPh3)] moiety between two sulfide sites in a {Pt2HgS2} core. Cyclic voltammetry was carried out on 2,3b, 5 and 6. Complex 3b undergoes an approximately reversible one electron transfer oxidation with Ep3 = 1.10 V and £p,c=i.oiv. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2000.
