Abstract

The thermally stable, paramagnetic Pt(iii) complex [PtI2(IPr)2][BArF] has been prepared by oxidation of the Pt(ii) complex [PtI2(IPr)2] with iodine in the presence of NaBArF. X-ray crystallographic studies revealed the mononuclear nature of this species with a square-planar geometry. EPR and DFT studies pointed out to a metal-centred radical.
