Title: Thermochromic platinum complexes

Abstract

Thermochromic compounds are described containing the [Pt(dipic)Cl][sup [minus]] anion. These compounds are yellow and monomeric at high temperatures or in low concentrations and abruptly change to red and polymeric at low temperatures or higher solution concentrations. This unusual property allows them to be used as temperature sensors.
