Abstract

The high nucleophilicity of the sulfur atoms in [Pt2(dppp) 2(μ-S)2] triggers a C-F activation process in 1,3-difluoro-2-propanol that leads to the [Pt2(dppp) 2(μ-S)(μ-SCH2CH(OH)CH2F]F product through a SN2 mechanism, where the O-H⋯F hydrogen bond established from the alcohol group of the organic substrate is essential for assisting the departure of the fluoride anion. © The Royal Society of Chemistry.
