The first examples of platinum(II) complexes of the P4C4But4 and P5C5But5 "cages" are described and detailed nmr and X-ray crystallographic structural studies have been carried out on the complexes trans-[PtCl2(PR3)(P4C4Bu t4)], trans-[{PtCl2(PR3)}22(P 4C4But4)], (R = Et, Bu), and trans-[PtCl2(PEt3)-(P5C5Bu t5)].
