Abstract

original image

Planar, sterically undemanding Ni, Pd, and Pt complexes of type (1)—useful donor components for CT complexes—have been synthesized from tetraethoxypropane, ethanol, HCl, H2S, and MCl2. The NMR spectra of Pt(ptt)2, (1), M = Pt, X = S, suggest strong electron delocalization.
