      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Crystals of cycloocta-1,5-dionato acetylacetonato platinum tetrafluoborate are orthorhombic and the space group is Pca21. The structure was solved by the heavy atom method and refined by full-matrix least-squares. The coordination of platinum is squareplanar; the metal is coordinated to the π-orbitals of the double bonds of the cycloocta-1,5-diene ring and the oxygen functions of the planar acetylacetone ligand. The cycloocta-1,5-diene occurs as a tub-shaped ring. The tetrafluoborate group may be disordered. The molecules are held in space by van der Waals’ forces only.
