1,2-Bis[(2,4,6-tri-tert-butylphenyl)phosphinidene]cyclobuta[l]phenanthrene (DPCB-phen) as a low-coordinated phosphorus ligand forms the platinum(0) alkyne complexes [Pt(alkyne)-(DPCB-phen)] with extended π-conjugated systems. The colors of the complexes are highly dependent on alkyne ligands, showing a marked variation from reddish orange to teal.
