Abstract

The protonation of (PCP)PtH (PCP=η3-2,6-(tBu2PCH2) 2C6H3) to give a (PCP)PtII dihydrogen complex was reported. The reaction was accomplished in CD2Cl2 with [H(OEt2)2]+BAr′4- [Ar′ = 3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]. The analysis showed that the H2 ligand was expelled when the solution was warmed to room temperature, but the dihydrogen complex was reformed when H2 was added.
