Abstract

The reaction of the monoalkyl complex trans-[Pt(DMSO)(2)Cl(CH3)] with a large variety of heterocyclic nitrogen bases L, in chloroform solution. leads to the formation of uncharged complexes of the type [Pt(DMSO)(L)Cl(CH3)] containing four different groups coordinated to the metal center. Only two out of the three different possible isomers were detected in solution. These two trans(C,N) and cis(C,N) species can be unambiguously identified through H-1 NMR spectroscopy. For the trans(C,N) isomers, average values of (2)J(PtH) = 75 +/- 4 Hz and (3)J(PtH) = 36 +/- 4 Hz have been observed for the coordinated methyl and DMSO ligands, respectively. In the case of the cis(C,N) isomers, these values increase to (2)J(PtH) = 83 +/- 2 Hz, and decrease to (3)J(PtH) = 26 +/- 3 Hz due to the mutual exchange of ligands in trans position to CH., and DMSO. In the case of bulky asymmetric ligands, such as quinoline, 2-quinolinecarboxaldehyde, 2-methylquinoline. 5-aminoquinoline, 2-phenylpyridine and 2-chloropyridine, slow rotation of the hindered group around the Pt-N bond makes the coordinated DMSO ligand prochiral. NMR experiments have shown that the first reaction product is the trans(C,N) isomer as a consequence of the very fast removal of one DMSO ligand by the nitrogen bases from the starting complex trans-[Pt(DMSO)(2)Cl(CH3)]. This trans kinetic product undergoes a geometrical conversion into the more stable cis(C,N) isomer through the intermediacy of fast exchanging aqua-species. The rate of isomerization and the relative stability of the two isomers depends essentially on the rate of aquation and on the steric congestion imposed by the new L ligand on the metal.
