Highlights of the co-ordination chemistry of platinum metal complexes of phosphorus-oxygen chelating agents are described. The ligands of interest all contain the oxygen bearing substituent (methoxy, hydroxy, formyl, carboxy-) to a phosphine on a benzene ring; complexes of these ligands are efficient homogeneous catalysts for hydrogenation, isomerisation and polymerisation reactions. Furthermore, these studies have revealed structural and reactivity patterns which are suggestive of new and improved strategies towards useful catalytic systems.
