Abstract

Reaction of 5,10-dihydrophenazine with two equivalents of Ph2PCl, in the presence of n-BuLi at -78 degreesC in thf gives Ph2PN(C6H4)(C6H4)NPPh2 (1) (1) which can be oxidised with selenium to Ph2P(Se)N(C6H4)(C-6 H-4)NP(Se)Ph-2 (2) (2) or coordinated with Pt(Il) in cis-[PtCl2 {Ph2PN(C6H4)(C6H4)NPPh2}] (3) (3) The structure of 3 reveals a severely distorted (non-planar) phenazine backbone.
