  1. The gyroscope like dichloride complexes trans -Pt(Cl) 2 (P((CH 2 ) n ) 3 P) ( trans -2; n = c, 14; e, 18; g, 22) and MeLi (2 equiv.) react to yield the parachute like dimethyl complexes cis -Pt(Me) 2 (P((CH 2 ) n ) 3 P) ( cis -4c,e,g, 70–91%). HCl (1 equiv.) and cis -4c react to give cis -Pt(Cl)(Me)(P((CH 2 ) 14 ) 3 P) ( cis -5c, 83%), which upon stirring with silica gel or crystallization affords trans -5c (89%). Similar reactions of HCl and cis -4e,g give cis / trans -5e,g mixtures that upon stirring with silica gel yield trans -5e,g. A parallel sequence with trans -2c/EtLi gives cis -Pt(Et) 2 (P((CH 2 ) 14 ) 3 P) ( cis -6c, 85%) but subsequent reaction with HCl affords trans -Pt(Cl)(Et)(P((CH 2 ) 14 ) 3 P) ( trans -7c, 45%) directly. When previously reported cis -Pt(Ph) 2 (P((CH 2 ) 14 ) 3 P) is treated with HCl (1 equiv.), cis - and trans -Pt(Cl)(Ph)(P((CH 2 ) 14 ) 3 P) are isolated (44%, 29%), with the former converting to the latter at 100 °C. Reactions of trans -5c and LiBr or NaI affordmore »the halide complexes trans -Pt(X)(Me)(P((CH 2 ) 14 ) 3 P) ( trans -9c, 88%; trans -10c, 87%). Thermolyses and DFT calculations that include acyclic model compounds establish trans > cis stabilities for all except the dialkyl complexes, for which energies can be closely spaced. The σ donor strengths of the non-phosphine ligands are assigned key roles in the trends. The crystal structures of cis -4c, trans -5c, trans -7c, and trans -10c are determined and analyzed together with the computed structures.« less
  2. The reduction potentials (reported vs. Fc + /Fc) for a series of Cp′ 3 Ln complexes (Cp′ = C 5 H 4 SiMe 3 , Ln = lanthanide) were determined via electrochemistry in THF with [ n Bu 4 N][BPh 4 ] as the supporting electrolyte. The Ln( iii )/Ln( ii ) reduction potentials for Ln = Eu, Yb, Sm, and Tm (−1.07 to −2.83 V) follow the expected trend for stability of 4f 7 , 4f 14 , 4f 6 , and 4f 13 Ln( ii ) ions, respectively. The reduction potentials for Ln = Pr, Nd, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, and Lu, that form 4f n 5d 1 Ln( ii ) ions ( n = 2–14), fall in a narrow range of −2.95 V to −3.14 V. Only cathodic events were observed for La and Ce at −3.36 V and −3.43 V, respectively. The reduction potentials of the Ln( ii ) compounds [K(2.2.2-cryptand)][Cp′ 3 Ln] (Ln = Pr, Sm, Eu) match those of the Cp′ 3 Ln complexes. The reduction potentials of nine (C 5 Me 4 H) 3 Ln complexes were also studied and found to be 0.05–0.24 V more negative than those of the Cp′more »3 Ln compounds.« less
