A Facile Formation of π-Allylplatinum Complexes by Decarboxylation of Allyloxycarbonylplatinum Complexes: Importance of π-Olefin Coordination in π-Allylplatinum Formation

  • Hideo Kurosawa

Allyloxycarbonylplatinum(II) complexes readily afforded π-allylplatinum(II) complexes by decarboxylation under several reaction conditions. The importance of olefin coordination to a platinum atom in the transition state is suggested. The other novel routes to π-allylplatinum(II) complexes which apparently involve a similar reaction intermediate are also described.
