Abstract: Reaction of an excess of the ligand 1,2-C2H4(N=CH-2-C5H4N)2 (1), 1,2-C2H4(N=CH-2-C9-H6N)2 (2), or 1,3-C3H6(N=CH-2-C5H4N)2 (3) with [Pt2Me4(μ-SMe2)2] gives the following platinum(II) complexes that contain a free imine functional group: [PtMe2{C2H4(N=CH-2-C5H 4N)(N=CH-2-C5H4N)}] (4), [PtMe2{C2H4(N=CH-2-C9H 6N)(N=CH-2-C9H6N)} (5), or [PtMe2{C3H6(N=CH-2-C5H 4N)(N==CH-2-C5H4N)}] (6) (C5H4N ==pyridyl, C9H6N = quinolyl). The reaction of complexes 4-6 with excess CF3CO2H or HCl gave aminoalkylplatinum(IV) products, and it is suggested that the reactions occur by protonation of the free imine nitrogen atom followed by oxidative addition of the transient iminium group so formed/The products were formed as a mixture of isomers whose structures were deduced from their spectroscopic properties and, for the complexes [PtMe2{C2H4(N=CH-2-C5H 4N)(NH2CH-2-C5H4NH)}(O 2CCF3)][O2CCF3]2 (7a) [PtMe2{C2H4(N=CH-2-C5H 4N)(NH2CH-2-C5H4NH)}Cl][Cl] 2 (8a), and [PtMe2{C3H6(N=CH-2- C5H4N)(NH2-CH-2-C5H 4N)Cl][Cl] (14a), by X-ray structure determinations. The reaction of 5 with an equimolar amount of CF3CO2H gave [PtMe2{C2H4(N= CH-2-C9H6N)(NHCH-2-C9H6N)}][CF 3CO2] (9), which was shown by X-ray structure determination to contain a four-membered azametallacyclobutane ring. Attempts to effect the intermolecular protonation/metalation of imines by platinum(II) were unsuccessful, since reactions of [PtMe2(bu2bpy)] (bu2bpy = 4,4′-di-tert-butylbipyridine) with N-benzylidene-methylamine or N-benzylideneaniline and CF3CO2H led only to protonolysis of the methyl-platinum bonds. © 2000 American Chemical Society.
