Until now, all late-transition-metal oxo complexes with d-electron-rich metals, such as platinum, have used electron-withdrawing ligands to stabilize the molecule.
Compound is stable without electron-withdrawing ligands
David Milstein and coworkers at Weizmann Institute of Science were able to generate a platinum oxo complex that's stable at room temperature, even though it contains no electron-withdrawing ligands.
AN ISRAELI TEAM reports preparing an elusive late-transition-metal oxo complex, in which platinum is doubly bonded to oxygen, without the use of electron-withdrawing ligands to stabilize the electron-rich metal (
