Abstract/Artist's Statement

Imine ligands are stirred at room temperature in acetone for an extended amount of time to produce cyclometalated Pt(IV) compounds [PtMe2X1{4-X2C6H3CH=NCH2(4-X3C6H4)}L] (L= SMe2 or PPh3) (X1, X2, X3 = Br, Cl, Me, or H). These compounds are subjected to thermolysis reactions where Csp3-Csp2 reductive elimination occurs and subsequently activation of either exclusive Csp2-H bonds (L = SMe2) or competition between Csp2-H and Csp3-H bonds (L = PPh3). A side reaction with Csp2-X (X = Br or Cl) reductive elimination is also reported.
