Several trans-platinum(II) complexes, of the type R'-{Pt(PBu3)(2)}-R"-{Pt(PR3)(2)}-R', where R' and R" are groups derived from a series of aromatic alkynes and diynes, have been prepared and characterized. Extensive spectroscopic data for these and other known related complexes are presented. A more precise structural study of trans-Pt(CdropCC(6)H(4)CdropCPh)(2)(PBu3)(2) (cf. Z Kristallogr. 1998; 213: 483) is reported. Copyright (C) 2002 John Wiley Sons, Ltd.
