This work describes the synthesis of cis-[Pt(C≡CPh) 2(Hdmpz)2] (1) and its use as a precursor for the preparation of homo- and heteropolynuclear complexes. Double deprotonation of compound 1 with readily available MI (M = Cu, Ag, Au) or M II (M = Pd, Pt) species affords the discrete hexanuclear clusters [{PtM2(μ-C≡CPh)2(μ-dmpz)2} 2] [M = Cu (2), Ag (3), Au (4)], in which both "Pt(C≡CPh) 2-(dmpz)2" fragments are connected by four d 10 metal centers, and are stabilized by alkynyl and dimethylpyrazolate bridging ligands, or the trinuclear complexes [Pt(μ-C≡CPh)2(μ-dmpz)2{M-(ĈP)} 2] (M = Pd (5), Pt (6): ĈP = CH2-C6H 4-P(o-tolyl)2-κC,P), respec tively. The X-ray structures of complexes 1-4 and 6 are reported. The X-ray structure of the platinum-copper derivative 2 shows that all copper centers exhibit similar local geometry being linearly coordinated to a nitrogen atom and η2 to one alkynyl fragment. However in the related platinum-silver (3) and platinum-gold (4) derivatives the silver and gold atoms present three different coordination environments. The complexes have been studied by absorption and emission spectroscopy. The hexanuclear complexes exhibit bright luminescence in the solid state and in fluid solution (except 4 in the solid state at 298 K). Dual long-lived emission is observed, being clearly resolved in low-temperature rigid media. The low-energy emission is ascribed to MLM′CT Pt(d)/π-(C≡CPh)→Pt(pz)/M′(sp)/π *(C≡CPh) modified by metal-metal interactions whereas the high-energy emission is tentatively attributed to an emissive state derived from dimethylpyrazolate-to-metal (d10) LM′CT transitions π-(dmpz)→M′(d10). © 2006 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
