cis-Bis(acetato-kO)bis(dimethyl sulfide-kS)platinum(II)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The title compound, cis-[Pt(CH3COO)2(C2H6S)2], crystallizes in the P21/c space group with a pseudo-square-planar geometry. The complex forms centrosymmetric dimeric packing units, with C-H...O-Pt interactions and a short Pt...Pt distance [3.5868(2) Å]. The coordination mode of the acetate ligands is monodentate and they are oriented almost perpendicular to the coordination plane. Cambridge Structural Database [Allen (2002). Acta Cryst. B58, 380-388] data show a preferred staggered conformation with respect to the coordination plane for Me2S in complexes with Pt(II).
