Abstract

Chloride metathesis of[AuCl(HL)] [HL = Ph2P(O)NHPPh2] or [PdCl2(en)] (en = ethane-1,2-diamine) in CH3OH with either 1 (or 2) equivalents of [Ph2P(O)NP(E)Ph-2](-) (E = S or Se) gave the neutral compounds [Au{Ph2P(O)NP(E)Ph-2-E}(HL)] or [Pd{Ph2P(O)NP(E)Ph-2-E}(2)(en)] respectively; the anionic ligands in these complexes adopt a new bonding mode and furthermore are involved in intramolecular N-H ... OP hydrogen bonding with HL or en.
