Step by step: Selective and stepwise degradation of CF3 groups in the homoleptic organoplatinum(II) derivative [NBu4]2[Pt(CF3)4] can be achieved by using increasingly harsher acidic conditions (Brønsted acids: H2O or HCl, see scheme). Indirect evidence for the intermediacy of the highly electrophilic [Pt][DOUBLE BOND]CF2 species has been attained through the isolation and structural characterization of a donor (L)-stabilized [Pt][DOUBLE BOND]CF2L compound.
