Ligands containing thiophene and imine moieties were synthesized in order to study their reactions with platinum precursors. The imine is thought to coordinate initially to the platinum atom, with chelate-assisted C-H activation of the thiophene occurring next. A range of orthometalation products were obtained. The products varied depending on the reaction conditions including the solvents utilized, the steric bulk of the ligands, the stoichiometric ratios employed, the reaction temperatures, and the reaction times. All ligands and platinum complexes were characterized by 1H NMR and IR spectroscopies.
