The hydrated platinum(II) ion in aqueous solution—a combined theoretical and EXAFS spectroscopic study

Hofer, Thomas S.; Randolf, Bernhard R.; Rode, Bernd M.; Persson, Ingmar


The hydrated platinum(II) ion, previously characterized as square-planar in aqueous solution, has been shown by quantum mechanical charge field molecular dynamic (QMCF MD) simulations and EXAFS experiments to be hexa-coordinated with two additional ligands in elongated axial positions
