Abstract

A series of Pt(IV) complexes relevant to catalytic C-F activation have been prepared and structurally characterized. Pt-IV-F complexes, formed by C-F activation, underwent transmetalation with Me2Zn to generate Me3PtIV fluoroaryl complexes. In all cases, the Me3PtIV complex underwent reductive elimination to generate methylated organic products. The reactivity of both Pt-IV-F and Me3PtIV fluoroaryl complexes was strongly affected by the electronic nature of the cyclometalated fluoroaryl ligand.
