Abstract

The complex Pt(SO2)2(PPh3)2 reacts with butadiene and isoprene to give the complexes Pt(1,2-η-C 4H5R) (SO2) (PPh3)2 (R = H or Me) which, on refluxing in benzene, afford high yields of the triangulo-cluster compound Pt3(μ-Ph)(μ-PPh2)(μ- SO2)(PPh3)3, characterised by a single crystal X-ray diffraction study.
