A hydroxlic solvent promoted reaction: Boron-to-platinum methyl-group transfer occurs in the title complexes in the presence of an oxidant (O2 or MeI) and a protic solvent (water, alcohols; see scheme). With MeI as oxidant the reaction intermediate is shown to be a five-coordinate PtIV species containing a Pt⋅⋅⋅CH agostic interaction.
