Abstract

A new Pt(II) ethyl ethene complex, [Pt(μ-Cl)-(CH2CH3)(C2H4] 2, (1), was isolated from the reaction of ethene with K2PtCl4 in water, and the structure was confirmed by X-ray crystallography. The results of oxidation experiments involving 1 indicate that PtII-C2H5 and PtII-(CH2=CH2) species are viable intermediates in the conversion of ethane to ethanol and ethane-1,2-diol by the Shilov system.
