Abstract/Artist's Statement

Multi-dentate thiophene-derived imine ligands, with a cyclohexyl backbone containing a variety of stereocenters, were synthesized and then subsequently reacted with the binuclear platinum compound, [Pt2Me4(µ-SMe2)2], to afford cyclometalated platinum(II) species with C^N^N pincer-type ligands. The complexes were characterized by NMR, IR, UV/vis, and emission spectroscopy. The complexes’ reactions with methyl iodide were explored to determine the stereospecificity of the oxidative addition reaction to form platinum(IV) species.
