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