Abstract

A series of dinuclear platinum(II) complexes, [(dien)Pt(NH 2(CH2)nNH2)Pt(dien)]Cl4 (dien = diethylenetriamine, n = 8, 9, 10, and 12) and their corresponding [2]rotaxanes with α-cyclodextrin (α-CD), [(dien)Pt{NH 2(CH2)nNH2-α-CD}Pt(dien)] Cl4, have been synthesized and characterized by 1H, 13C, and 195Pt NMR spectroscopy and electrospray mass spectrometry. The rotaxanes were prepared by reacting the {NH 2(CH2)nNH2-α-CD} pseudorotaxanes with [Pt(dien)]Cl, to stopper the included linear α,ω-diaminoalkane chains with the inert Pt(II) end groups. The kinetics of the self-assembly and dissociation of the β-CD rotaxane, [(dien)Pt{NH2(CH2)10NH2· β-CD}Pt(dien)]4+, were investigated by using 1H NMR and are indicative of a slippage mechanism, owing to the comparable sizes of the β-CD cavity and the [Pt(dien)]+ end group. A relatively weak inclusion of the end group in the β-CD cavity precedes a thermally promoted passage of the β-CD over the [Pt(dien)]+ end group onto the hydrophobic polymethylene chain of the bridging ligand of the thread.
