cis-[Pt(CO)2Cl2] reacts at 20 °C with 1-phenylpropyne, in non-polar solvents, to give ionic species of the type [Pt2(C4Me2Ph2)2Cl 3] [Pt(CO)Cl3] (1) with the methyl groups of the η4-cyclobutadiene ring in a cis configuration. Analytical and spectroscopic data of complex (1) show that the cation is a dimeric platinum(II) complex with three bridging chlorine atoms; each platinum is also co-ordinated to a tetrasubstituted cyclobutadiene ring. Complex (1) is easily transformed into the corresponding neutral tetrasubstituted-cyclobutadiene derivative [Pt2(C4Me2Ph2)2Cl 4] (2). Complex (2) reacts with triphenylphosphine to give the monomeric derivative [Pt(C4Me2Ph2)(PPh3)Cl2] (5a). Evidence for the formation of the isomer with trans methyl groups for reactions under different conditions is reported; organic by-products, obtained by dimerisation of acetylenes with CO insertion, and hexasubstituted benzene have been isolated. The crystal structure of complex (5a) has been solved by Patterson and Fourier methods from counter data and refined by diagonal least squares to a final conventional R of 0.046 for 4 358 independent observed reflections. Crystals of (5a) are monoclinic, space group P21/c, with unit-cell dimensions a = 10.900(4), b = 23.437(6), c = 13.289(4) Å, β = 113.5(5)°, and Z = 4. The crystals contain discrete molecules in which the co-ordination around the Pt atom is distorted tetrahedral. Selected bond lengths (Å) are: Pt-Cl(1) 2.425(3), Pt-Cl(2) 2.430(2), Pt-P 2.353(2). The cyclobutadiene ring is asymmetrically co-ordinated to platinum [Pt-C distances in the range 2.116(9)-2.214(8) Å]; the C-C bond distances in the ring, which is planar, are equal to within the estimated standard deviations [av. 1.47(1) Å].
