The trimethylplatinum(IV) complexes of a number of dithiocarbamato ligands have been prepared. The complexes are dimeric in the solid-state and in solution, with the ligands acting in both a bridging and chelating fashion. Restricted rotation about the ligand C-N bonds in solution leads to the formation of four rotomers. The kinetics of the restricted rotation were measured by a variety of dynamic NMR techniques in the slow and intermediate exchange regimes. Two distinct processes are observed, namely the independent rotation about each C-N bond and correlated rotation about both C-N bonds. The free energies of activation, which are strongly dependent on the nature of the ligand substituents, are in the range 65 – 88 kJ mol-1 at 298 K. The origins of the barrier to rotation and the effects of the N substituents are discussed. The X-ray structures of fac-[PtMe3(Me2NCS2)]2 (2) and fac-[PtMe3(Ph(H)NCS2)]2 , (6) are reported.
