2009_24/2009Reaction of 3,3,5,5-Tetraphenyl-1,2,4-trithiolane with Pt0(bisphosphane)(η2-nbe) Complexes Bearing Bridged Bisphosphane Ligands with Various Bite Angles (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 24/2009)

The cover picture shows the mechanism of the treatment of (bisphosphane)platinum(0) complex fragments bearing various bridged bisphosphane ligands with the 3,3,5,5-tetraphenyl-1,2,4-trithiolane. As a result of these reactions dithiolato complexes and the appropriate η2-thioketone complexes could be isolated. This, as well as the determined first-order reaction kinetics in the trithiolane, approves the depicted mechanism starting with its decomposition into thioketone and thiosulfine, which is in equilibrium with the corresponding tautomeric dithiirane. The background shows sublimed sulfur (photo by Thomas Weisheit) referring to the investigated sulfur-rich heterocycle. Details are discussed in the article by W. Weigand et al. on p. 3545 ff.
