The preparation of ortho-chelating aminoaryl ligands ([C6H3(CH2NMe2)-2-R-4]-, abbreviated as C,N) containing a pendant hydroxymethyl group is described. These ligands have been cycloplatinated with cis-PtCl2(DMSO)2, yielding the corresponding C,N-platinum(II) complexes. The pendant hydroxymethyl substituent is a versatile group for attachment of the organometallic moiety to macromolecules, which has been demonstrated by attaching the C,N-platinum complexes to a dendritic wedge and to C60.
