## Asymmetric Synthesis of Coordination Compounds: Back to the Roots. Diastereoselective Synthesis of Simple Platinum(IV) Complexes

### In: Helvetica Chimica Acta, 2005, vol. 88(3), p. 496-506

A publication by Alexander P. Smirnoff in Helvetica Chimica Acta in 1920 [6] describes the first synthesis of a coordination species, i.e., of tris(propane-1,2-diamine-κN¹,κN²)platinum(4+) ([PtIV(pn)₃]⁴⁺), where it was shown that the configuration of a chiral center in the ligand can influence the configuration at the metal. The present investigation of... More
