Abstract: The reaction of PtBr2 with NaOAc and 1,3- diisopropylbenzimidazolium bromide (A) in DMSO afforded the mixed monocarbene-DMSO complex cw-[PtBr2(DMSO)(iPr 2-bimy)] (cis-1) and the bis(carbene) complex trans-[PtBr 2(iPr2-bimy)2] (trans-2). The DMSO ligand in cis-1 can be easily replaced by stronger donors such as triphenylphosphine and pyridine to give novel benzannulated monocarbene complexes trans-[PtBr2(iPr2-bimy)(PPh 3)] (trans-3), cis-[PtBr2(iPr 2-bimy)(PPh3)] (cis-3), and trans-[PtBr2( iPr2-bimy)-(Pyridine)] (trans-4), respectively. All compounds have been fully characterized by multinuclei NMR spectroscopies and mass spectrometry (ESI, FAB). X-ray diffraction studies on single crystals of cis-1, trans-2, cis-3, and trans-4 revealed a square-planar geometry and a fixed orientation of the N-isopropyl substituents with the C-H protons pointing to the metal center to maximize interesting and rare C-H⋯ Pt preagostic interactions. These interactions are also retained in solution, as indicated by the large downfield shift of the isopropyl C-H protons in the 1H NMR spectrum compared to that in the precursor salt A. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
