in this paper. By far the most intriguing complex is 2, the first mononuclear Pt(II1) complex ever reported.
[NBu4]+[Pt(C&l5),]-( 2) can be prepared by reacting [NBu4]2+[Pt(C,C15)4]2(-1 ) with various oxidants such
as C12, Br2, 12, or T1C13 and also by the electrochemical oxidation of 1 at 0.7 V in CH2C12. Compound 2
is stable to air and moisture, shows very limited reactivity, and has magnetic properties consistent with
a 1/2 spin system. Complex 2 reacts with NO gas to give the adduct [NBu4]'[Pt(C6Cl5),(NO)]- (3), which
can also be made directly from 1 by reaction with [NO]+[ClO,]- under an atmosphere at NO. Attempts
to make the corresponding fluorine analogue of the Pt(II1) complex [NBu4]+[Pt(C6F,),]w- ere unsuccessful.
The X-ray structures of complexes 1-3 have been determined and are also reported in this aper. Complex
3 crystallizes in the tetragonal space group P4,lnbc (no. 1331, with a = b = 14.948 (6) c = 23.488 (9)
8, V = 5248 (3) %r3, and p(calcd) = 1.85 g cm-3 for 2 = 4. The structure has been refined to a final agreement
factor of R = 6.6%.
