Abstract

[Pt(C6F5)2(tmen)], C18H 16F10N2Pt, Mr = 645·5, monoclinic, C2/c, a = 19·526 (6), b = 8·554 (1), c = 13·282 (2) Å, β = 113·43 (2)°, V = 2036 (3) Å3, Z = 4, Dx = 2·106 g cm-3, λ(Mo Kα) = 0·7107 Å, μ = 70·21 cm-1 F(000) = 1224, T = 293(1)K, R = 0·040 for 1906 observed reflections. The Pt atom in the title compound, which lies on a crystallographic twofold axis, exists in a distorted square planar geometry comprised of a chelating tetramethylethylenediamine (tmen) ligand [Pt - N 2·141(5)Å] and two pentafluorophenyl groups [Pt - C 2·006 (6)Å] which make an angle of 87·1° with the square plane.
