[Me3PtF]4) can be prepared from the action of AgF on [Me3PtI]4. In the presence of moisture it hydrolyses to give progressively [(Me3PtF)3(Me3PtOH)], [(Me3PtF)2(Me3PtOH)2], [(Me3PtF)(Me3PtOH)3] and [Me3PtOH]4. Variable temperature NMR spectroscopy of these partially hydrolysed tetra-platinum fluorides shows that at higher temperatures the methyl groups within each Me3Pt unit rapidly exchange sites by an intramolecular mechanism, but the cubic Pt4X4 cages retain their integrity.
