Abstract

Reaction Of PtCl2(PR3)2 with sodium dithiolates gives mixed-ligand complexes such as Pt(PR3)2(mnt) (1). Attempts to prepare mixed SN/mnt complexes of gold were unsuccessful, [Bu4N][Au(mnt)2] (2) being obtained. New compounds were characterized by IR and NMR spectroscopy and microanalyses, and in the case of 1 and 2 by X-ray crystallography. Both 1 and 2 are square planar. In 2, one of the crystallographically independent anions lies over a symmetry related neighbour.
