Abstract The coordination of acetamide and formamide to dienPtII is described. Both O- and N-bonded amide complexes are stable and have been isolated. As oxygen donor ligands for dienPtII, the binding affinity of amides lies between water and the very weakly coordinating acetone. The O-bonded amide complexes [dienPtOC(R)NH2]2+ are the kinetically preferred isomers in acetone but they rearrange very slowly (t1/2 ∼ 30 h, 20°C) and intramolecularly to the thermodynamically more stable N-bonded amide complexes (K = [N]/[O] ∼ 30). This is the reverse of relative amide affinities for harder metal ions (e.g. (NH3)5M3+, M = Co(III), Cr(III), Ru(III)) despite comparable polarizing power for dienPtII. The N-bonded amide isomers exist in solution (acetone, DMSO, water) as the imidol, [dienPtNH=C(OH)R]2+, rather than the amide tautomer, [dienPtNH2COR]2+, whereas the opposite has been observed for N-bonded ureas. The N-bonded amides adopt only one of the two possible geometric isomers which could result from restricted rotation about the amide N=C bond, and they are appreciably acidic (pKa 3.8, 20°C, H2O, I = 0.1 M; R = Me). Complexes of both O- and N-bonded amides are unstable in coordinating solvents (f1/2 < 1 min, O-isomers; t1/2 > 40 h, N-isomers; 20°C, H2O), but no decomposition of the amide ligands was detected during solvolysis (amide release) in either DMSO or water, nor was the Pt(II) susceptible to aerial oxidation as reported for mixtures of amides with cis-diammineplatinum(II). Coordination preferences of amides to "soft" versus "hard" metals are compared.
