Reaction of [Ni(CH3CO)(2)]4H(2)O, H2PdCl4 or H2PtCl6 with HN[P(Se)Ph-2](2) in water/acetone gave the title compounds in good yield. The compounds were characterised by IR/Raman, NMR and X-ray crystallography. The square planar metal centres form parts of spiro pseudo-boat rings. The X-ray structures allow comparison of the radii of Pt and Pd atoms. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
