The size of the bridging ligand controls whether N-heterocyclic phosphenium metal(0) chlorides [MCl(NHP)]n (M = Pd, Pt) form dimers or trimers. The oligomers resist attempts to exchange bridging NHP units, but easily undergo displacement of the chlorido terminal ligands. This reaction can be employed in a catalytic synthesis of formaldehyde dibenzylthioacetal.
