PROBLEM: The work reported in the following thesis was conducted to study the stabilization of aryl platinum(II) complexes with triphenylarsine, to extend the series of cyclicpolyolefin platinum(II) aryl compounds and to examine the effect organoiodides have on these complexes. METHOD: Synthesis of the complexes was carried out using the appropriate, predescribed laboratory procedures with modifications. Complexes were by infra-red, carbon, hydrogen and platinum analyses. RESULTS: Results show that triphenylarsine will stabilize aryl platinum(II) complexes, that halides will be replaced from diiodo(cyclooctatetraene)platinum(II) with m-tolyl groups by use of a Grignard reagent and bis(m-tolyl)platinum(II) is stabilized with pyridine. Reactions between the prepared platinum complexes and organoiodides could not be induced.
