2,2,4-Trimethylpent-3-en-1-ol (Me2C:CH·CMe 2·CH2·OH) reacts with palladium(II) chloride to give π-enyl complexes, i.e. {[(CH2·CMe·CH) ·CMe2·CH2·OAc]PdCl}2 in aqueous acetic acid and {[(CH2·CMe·CH)·CMe 2·CH2·OH]PdCl}2 in dimethylformamide. No interaction between the palladium and acetate or hydroxy-functions is observed. Reaction with [Rh(CO)2Cl]2 in benzene gives the olefin complex [(Me2C:CH·CMe 2·CH2·OH)Rh(CO)Cl]2 in which the hydroxy-function is also co-ordinated to the metal. With platinum(II) chloride in dimethylformamide the alcohol yields an olefin complex [Me 2C:CH·CMe2·CH2·O· PtCl]2 which contains a Pt-O covalent bond. N.m.r. and i.r. data are given to support the structures proposed.
