The immobilization of the dinuclear platinum(II) sulfido complex [Pt₂(μ-S)₂ (PPh₃)₄] on solid supports has been investigated. Reaction with haloalkyl functionalized polymers [Merrifield's resin (chloromethylated polystyrene), chloropropyl silica, chloropropyl controlled pore glass, and bromopropyl polysiloxane] gives complexes immobilized through alkylation of one of the sulfide ligands, forming a μ-thiolate ligand acting as an anchor to the polymer support, akin to well-established reactions of [Pt₂(μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄] with molecular alkylating agents. The model complex [Pt₂(μ-S)(μ-SCH₂SiMe₃)(PPh₃)₄]PF₆ was prepared as the first molecular silicon-containing derivative of [Pt₂(μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄] and was fully characterized by NMR spectroscopy, electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Immobilization of [Pt₂(μ-S)₂(PPh₃)₄] by phosphine exchange reactions was also achieved using commercial polystyrene-grafted triphenylphosphine or a new immobilized phosphine [derived by sequential functionalization of Merrifield's resin with a polyether amine and then Ph₂PCH₂OH].
