The X-ray structures of (5) cis-PtBr2(P(OMe)(3))(2), (6) cis-PtBr2(P(OMe)(2)Ph)(2), (7) cis-PtBr2(P(OMe)Ph-2)(2), (8) cis-PtBr2(PPh3)(2), (9) cis-PtI2(P(OMe)(3))(2), (10) cis-PtI2(P(OMe)(2)Ph)(2), (11) cis-PtI2(P(OMe)Ph-2)(2) and (12) cis-PtI2(PPh3)(2) are reported and compared with the previously reported chloride analogues. The magnitude of the J{Pt-P} varies linearly with the Pt-P bond length (l(Pt-P) = 2.421 - J/24255) for these 12 complexes.
