The first 119Sn NMR evidence for the presence of direct platinum-tin bond in solution has been obtained for PtCl(SnCl3)(bdpp) complex (bdpp = (2S,4S(-2,4-bis(diphenylphosphino)pentane). Various PtCl2(L2) complexes (L2 = hetero-bidentate P-P, P-O, P-N, P-S chelating ligands) have been reacted with tin(II)chloride resulting in the formation of the corresponding PtCl(SnCl3)(L2) derivatives. Tin(II)chloride has been inserted into the Pt-Cl bond trans to the harder donor atom of the L2 ligand.
