The efficient synthesis and characterization of the trans-platinum complex (Et3P)2Pt(C30H12) (2, PtDBA) is described. The X-ray crystal structure shows that a strained and warped annulenic core results upon insertion of the organometallic fragment. UV−vis data suggest electronic delocalization is present in the macrocycle.
