The reactions of some reagents containing fluorine, with a range of platinum and iridium complexes are described. These reactions were monitored by variable-temperature 19F and 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Initial parts of the work are concerned with the reactions of AsF3, with PtHX(PEt3)2 (X = Cl, Br or I). Several species were observed during the course of the reactions, the most interesting of which was a novel AsF2 bridged binuclear platinum species. All products were characterised using multinuclear NMR. Suggestions for possible mechanisms are also given. The second main area of study was the reactions of some difluorophosphinepseudohalides with various platinum metal complexes. The reactions of PF2X (X = NCO, NCS) with a range of iridium and platinum cations, anions and neutral complexes are described. In addition, the reactions of these fluorine-containing reagents with some transition metal dimers are also investigated.
