Platinum Complexes Bearing Bulky N-Heterocyclic Carbene Ligands as Efficient Catalysts for the Fully Selective Dimerization of Terminal Alkynes

Platinum Complexes Bearing Bulky N-Heterocyclic Carbene Ligands as Efficient Catalysts for the Fully Selective Dimerization of Terminal Alkynes
Jan Lorkowski, Maciej Kubicki, Patrycja Żak, Cezary Pietraszuk, Małgorzata Bołt
New platinum(0) complexes of the general formula [(NHC)Pt(dvtms)] (dvtms=1,3-divinyltetramethyldisiloxane) containing bulky N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands were prepared, characterized, and found to be catalytically active in the fully regio- and stereoselective dimerization of terminal acetylenes. Bulking up: Platinum(0) complexes of the type [(NHC)Pt(dvtms)] (dvtms=divinyltetramethyldisiloxane) containing bulky N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands are catalytically active in the fully regio- and stereoselective dimerization of terminal acetylenes. These are the first platinum complexes active in this transformation.
