Abstract

By studying a model set of square-planar [Pt(NH3)aXb]n (a + b = 4; Xb = combination of b halido ligands; n = 2 – b) complexes, we found that their δ(195Pt) NMR chemical shift decreases proportionally to the platinum bonded halido ligands' ionic radii overall sum. This confirms also for these systems, the already observed NMR shielding attributed to pseudo ring currents, circulating around the M–X bond axis. Moreover, the present data show that also the NH3 ligands are characterized by a constant NMR shielding ability toward the central metal. This could be rationalized in term of a “NMR effective molecular radius” of the NH3 ligand, affecting the observed δ(195Pt) as previously found for halido ligands. Interestingly, a δ(15N) decrease is observed in Pt bonded NH3 ligands if the ionic radius of a cis halido ligand is increased. The opposite occurs if the ionic radius of a trans halido ligand is increased. The two contrasting effects stem from both shielding electric ring currents affecting the cis ligands and prevailing trans-influence due to coordinated halido ligands.
