A stable trans-(alkyl)(boryl) platinum complex trans-[Pt(BCat')Me(PCy(3))(2)] (Cat'=Cat-4-tBu; Cy=cyclohexyl=C(6)H(11)) was synthesised by salt metathesis reaction of trans-[Pt(BCat')Br(PCy(3))(2)] with LiMe and was fully characterised. Investigation of the reactivity of the title compound showed complete reductive elimination of Cat'BMe at 80 °C within four weeks. This process may be accelerated by the addition of a variety of alkynes, thereby leading to the formation of the corresponding η(2) -alkyne platinum complexes, of which [Pt(η(2)-MeCCMe)(PCy(3))(2)] was characterised by X-ray crystallography. Conversion of the trans-configured title compound to a cis derivative remained unsuccessful due to an instantaneous reductive elimination process during the reaction with chelating phosphines. Treatment of trans-[Pt(BCat')Me(PCy(3))(2)] with Cat(2)B(2) led to the formation of CatBMe and Cat'BMe. In the course of further investigations into this reaction, indications for two indistinguishable reaction mechanisms were found 1) associative formation of a six-coordinate platinum centre prior to reductive elimination and 2) σ-bond metathesis of B-B and C-Pt bonds. Mechanism 1 provides a straightforward explanation for the formation of both methylboranes. Scrambling of diboranes(4) Cat(2)B(2) and Cat'(2)B(2) in the presence of [Pt(PCy(3))(2)], fully reductive elimination of CatBMe or Cat'BMe from trans-[Pt(BCat')Me(PCy(3))(2)] in the presence of sub-stoichiometric amounts of Cat(2)B(2), and evidence for the reversibility of the oxidative addition of Cat(2)B(2) to [Pt(PCy(3))(2)] all support mechanism 2, which consists of sequential equilibria reactions. Furthermore, the solid-state molecular structure of cis-[Pt(BCat)(2)(PCy(3))(2)] and cis-[Pt(BCat')(2)(PCy(3))(2)] were investigated. The remarkably short B-B separations in both bis(boryl) complexes suggest that the two boryl ligands in each case are more loosely bound to the Pt(II) centre than in related bis(boryl) species.
