From the reaction of PtCl2(hex) (hex=hexa-1,5-diene) with LiC6F5 in diethyl ether, the complex [Pt{CH(CH2C6F5)CH2CH 2CH=CH2}(C6F5)(OH2)] (1) was isolated. The crystal structure (monoclinic, C2/c (no. 15), Z=8, a=15.241(3), b=16.579(2), c=16.225(2) Å, β= 111.12(2)°) shows a complex with square planar coordination around platinum with a template formed 1-pentafluorophenylhex-5-en-2-yl ligand, and C6F5 and aqua ligands trans to the double bond and alkyl carbon, respectively.
