Synthesis and Characterization of New Ethylenediamine Platinum(IV) Complexes Containing Lipophilic Carboxylate Ligands
A series of new ethylenediamine (en) platinum(IV) complexes of the type , with cyclobutane-1,1-dicarboxylato (CBDCA), dichloro or bis(decanoato) and A = acetato, dodecanoato, tetradecanoato, hexadecanoato, octadecanoato, adamantanecarboxylato (Ad) or , -diformoxy--cholato (DFCA) were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, infrared and NMR spectroscopic techniques. Previous platinum(IV) compounds were usually restricted to trans-dihydroxo or trans-dichloro platinum(IV) complexes. Recently trans-dicarboxylato platinum(IV) complexes with mainly acetate, trifluoracetate or short-chain carboxylate groups (<11 carbons) in the axial position have been described in the In this paper we report on the synthesis and characterization of a new class of ethylenediamine platinum(IV) compounds that have high lipophilic long-chain carboxylate ligands either in the axial or equatorial position. The platinum(IV) compounds with the lipophilic trans-carboxylate ligands in the axial position were prepared by acylation of the trans-dihydroxo platinum(IV) species using an acyl halide in the presence of pyridine. In contrast to previous the yields were excellent (up to 94%!).
