Lohr TL, Piers WE, Parvez M. Reversible insertion of carbon dioxide into Pt(ii)-hydroxo bonds. Dalton Trans. 2013;.
The reactivity of three monomeric diimine Pt(ii) hydroxo complexes, (NN)Pt(OH)R (NN = bulky diimine ligand; R = OH, ; R = C6H5, ; R = CH3, ) towards carbon dioxide has been investigated. Insertion into the Pt-OH bonds was found to be facile and reversible at low temperature for all compounds; the reaction with bis-hydroxide gives an isolable ?(2)-carbonato compound , with elimination of water.
