The work described in this thesis stems from the observation that
a pyrazolyl group in Me2Pt(HCpz3) umdergoes a Cyclometallation
reaction when heated in neat pyridine, giving rise to a NC-
coordination mode, which is uncommon for flexible carbon bridged
maltidentate ligands....
The chemistry of this novel cyclometallation system has been
explored, together with related polydentate ligand systems and the
oxidative addition reactivity of platinum(II) complexes, in order to
extend our knowledge of reactivity of platinum(II) toward formation
of organoplatinum(II) and platinum(IV) complexes with new structural
A range of polydentate pyrazolyl ligands were chosen, or designed
and synthesized, according to their ability to possibly undergo
cyclometallation reactions.
