Reaction of [Pt₂(μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄] with a range of zinc(II) and cobalt(II) complexes ML₂, where L is a β-diketonate ligand CH₃COCHCOCH₃, PhCOCHCOPh, CF₃COCHCOTh (Th = 2-thienyl)] permits the synthesis of adducts [Pt₂(μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄M(diketonate)]⁺, isolated as their BPH₄⁻salts in moderate yields. The cobalt and zinc acetylacetonate complexes were characterised by single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies, which reveal isomorphous structures, with tetrahedral heterometal centres.
