Reactions of [Pt₂(μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄] with zinc acetate and an ancillary chelating ligand L (HL = 8-hydroxyquinoline, 8-tosylaminoquinoline or maltol) with added trimethylamine in methanol give new cationic platinum–zinc sulfide aggregates [Pt₂(μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄ZnL]+, isolated as their BF4− salts. The complexes were characterized by NMR spectroscopy, ESI mass spectrometry, microelemental analysis, and an X-ray structure determination of the tosylamidoquinoline derivative [Pt₂(μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄Zn(TAQ)]BF₄, which showed a distorted tetrahedral coordination geometry at zinc. Additional examples, containing picolinate, dithiocarbamate, or dithiophosphinate ligands were also synthesized and partly characterized in order to demonstrate a wider range of available derivatives.
