Abstract

original image

At H2 pressures of up to 2 kbar, new ternary transition metal hydride complexes can be synthesized in which the transition metal has the same high oxidation state as in the corresponding ternary halides. In K2PtH6, which was prepared by this method, the complex [PtH6]2− building unit 1 was observed.
