The cis influence of a series of anionic ligands X and Y has been evaluated through the magnitude of the Pt-P coupling constants for compounds of formula trans-[PtXY(PPh(3))(2)]. The order of decreasing cis influence was found to be I > Cl > SePh approximately SPh approximately SEt > NO(3) > AcO approximately NO(2) > H > Me > Ph > mtc (mtc = N,N-dimethylmonothiocarbamato-S); moreover, the cis influences of the various ligands was found to be additive. The X-ray structures of three representative compounds (t-: X = Cl, Y = NO(3); t-: X = Cl, Y = AcO and t-: X = Y = NO(2)) have also been determined.
