Copper(I), silver(I), and gold(I) [M(PP)2]BF4 complexes have been prepared from two bisphosphine ligands, namely, 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)benzene (dppb) and bis[2-(diphenylphosphino)phenyl]ether (POP). Their electronic properties have been systematically investigated and rationalized as a combination of steric and electronic effects as well as by differences in their coordination geometries.
