Abstract

The title compounds were prepared from ethyl cyanoacetate by the four-step procedure of conversion into the corresponding 2-hydroxyimino-derivative, transesterification with either hexadecanol or cyclohexanol, catalytic hydrogenation of the respective products to afford the diamino-dihydrochlorides, and complex formation of the latter pair with potassium tetrachloroplatinate. Assignment of the structures of the cis-platinum complexes was confirmed by infrared spectrometry.
