The structure of the title compound, cis-[PtCl2(C2H5N5)2], was analysed using in-house X-ray powder diffraction data at room temperature. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined using Rietveld analysis. A slightly distorted square-planar coordination geometry is formed around the Pt atom by two Cl atoms and two ring N atoms of the 2-methyl-2H-tetra­zol-5-amine ligands, which are in a cis configuration. The planes of the tetra­zole rings are inclined at 79.7 (7) and 73.8 (6)° with respect to the coordination plane, with their substituents oriented in such a way that the complex as a whole has approximate C2 symmetry. Inter­molecular N—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds mediate the formation of a three-dimensional supra­molecular network.

Comment

Platinum complexes are the subject of a great deal of interest in connection with the search for new anti­cancer therapeutics showing better medical properties compared with those of cisplatin, carboplatin and oxaliplatin, which are widely used in clinical practice. It is known that these drugs exhibit side effects, and moreover their use is limited by inherent and acquired resistance. In this context, the synthesis and comprehensive characterization of PtII complexes with planar heterocyclic amine ligands are the subject of intense study, because such ligands are expected to ameliorate the toxic side effects of platinum-based anti­tumour drugs (Hotze et al., 2002[Hotze, A. C. G., Chen, Y., Hambley, T. W., Parsons, S., Kratochwil, N. A., Parkinson, J. A., Munk, V. P. & Sadler, P. J. (2002). Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. pp. 1035-1039.]). To date, many PtII complexes with nitro­gen-containing planar heterocycles, including pyridine and its derivatives, thia­zole, imidazole, pyrazole and quinoline, have been studied (Kalinowska-Lis et al., 2008[Kalinowska-Lis, U., Ochocki, J. & Matlawska-Wasowska, K. (2008). Coord. Chem. Rev. 252, 1328-1345.]). As for tetra­zole-containing analogues, their systematic study began only recently (Voitekhovich et al., 2009[Voitekhovich, S. V., Serebryanskaya, T. V., Lyakhov, A. S., Gaponik, P. N. & Ivashkevich, O. A. (2009). Polyhedron, 28, 3614-3620.]; Golovko et al., 2010[Golovko, Yu. S., Serebryanskaya, T. V., Matulis, Vad. E., Gaponik, P. N. & Ivashkevich, O. A. (2010). Dokl. NAS Belarus, 54, 83-89.]).

Scant information is present in the literature on the crystal structures of PtX2L2 complexes, with X being a halogen and L a neutral substituted tetra­zole. Crystal structures have been reported only for the trans isomer of the platinum(II) chloride complex with 2-tert-butyl-2H-tetra­zol-5-amine (Voitekhovich et al., 2009[Voitekhovich, S. V., Serebryanskaya, T. V., Lyakhov, A. S., Gaponik, P. N. & Ivashkevich, O. A. (2009). Polyhedron, 28, 3614-3620.]). The cis isomers of this class of complexes have not been structurally characterized yet, because many of them crystallize as fine powders, making structural investigations more difficult. We present here the structure of cis-dichloridobis(2-methyl-2H-tetra­zol-5-amine-κN4)­platinum(II), (I)[link], a tetra­zole-containing analogue of cisplatin. Powder diffraction data were used, because all attempts to grow suitable single crystals to date have failed because of cis–trans isomerization during recrystallization.

[Scheme 1]

Compound (I)[link] (Fig. 1[link]) is mononuclear cis-PtCl2L2, with space group P212121, which is not common for this class of compounds (see below). One mol­ecule, with 17 non-H atoms, constitutes the asymmetric unit. The Pt atom exhibits a slightly distorted square-planar coordination formed by N4 and N44 of two tetra­zole rings and by Cl1 and Cl2 in a cis arrangement [mean deviation of ligated atoms from the Pt1/Cl1/Cl2/N4/N44 plane = 0.037 (7) Å]. The Pt1—N4, Pt1—N44, Pt1—Cl1 and Pt1—Cl2 distances (Table 1[link]) lie within expected ranges [Cam­bridge Structural Database (CSD), Version 5.32, Nov­em­ber 2010; Allen, 2002[Allen, F. H. (2002). Acta Cryst. B58, 380-388.]]. The large ligands do not induce significant distortion from square-planar coordination geom­etry [N4—Pt1—N44 = 93.1 (5)°]. The geometry observed for both tetra­zole ligands is similar to that of the free ligand (Bryden, 1956[Bryden, J. H. (1956). Acta Cryst. 9, 874-878.]; Klapötke et al., 2009[Klapötke, T. M., Sabate, C. M., Penger, A., Rusan, M. & Welch, J. M. (2009). Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. pp. 880-896.]).

The amino (and meth­yl) groups of the 2-methyl-2H-tetra­zol-5-amine ligands lie on opposite sides of the coordination plane, giving approximate C2 symmetry to the complex as a whole. The two tetra­zole rings make dihedral angles of 79.7 (7) (N1–N4/C5) and 73.8 (6)° (N11/N22/N33/N44/C55) with the coordination plane, with corresponding torsion angles Cl2—Pt1—N4—C5 and Cl1—Pt1—N44—C55 of 86.6 (14) and 82.3 (12)°, respectively.

The amino H atoms are involved in inter­molecular N—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds (Fig. 2[link] and Table 2[link]). Both H atoms of the N5 amino group are donors to Cl1 atoms of different mol­ecules, forming ribbons propagating along the a axis (Fig. 3[link]a). Only one of the H atoms of the amino group at N55 participates in hydrogen bonding, linking the complex mol­ecules into chains extending along the c axis (Fig. 3[link]b), and connecting the above-mentioned ribbons into a three-dimensional network (Fig. 2[link]).

Complex (I)[link] belongs to `structural class' P212121, Z = 4(1) (notation of Zorkii et al., 1977[Zorkii, P. M., Razumaeva, A. E. & Belsky, V. K. (1977). Acta Cryst. A33, 1001-1004.]), which is rare among the cis isomers of PtX2L2. According to the analysis of Hansson et al. (2008[Hansson, C., Lindqvist, M. & Oskarsson, Å. (2008). Acta Cryst. B64, 187-195.]), based on the CSD, the distribution of structural classes of cis-PtX2L2 complexes (X is a halogen and L is a ligand with a donor atom from group 14, 15 or 16) is dominated by P21/c, Z = 4(1) (42% of compounds), followed by P[\overline{1}], Z = 2(1) (19%), and with a much lower representation for P212121, Z = 4(1) (5%).

Compound (I)[link] is the first structurally characterized tetra­zole-containing analogue of cisplatin. However, its cytotoxic activity, assayed in vitro against HeLa cells (Golovko et al., 2010[Golovko, Yu. S., Serebryanskaya, T. V., Matulis, Vad. E., Gaponik, P. N. & Ivashkevich, O. A. (2010). Dokl. NAS Belarus, 54, 83-89.]), is significantly lower than that of cisplatin. To begin to understand the mol­ecular mechanisms underlying the anti­tumour activity of tetra­zole-containing cisplatin analogues, and to develop a concept for the rational design of anti­tumour drugs based on a `structure–cytotoxic activity' relationship, it will be necessary to accumulate more and diverse information for this class of complexes.

The powder pattern was indexed with the program TREOR90 (Werner et al., 1985[Werner, P.-E., Eriksson, L. & Westdahl, M. (1985). J. Appl. Cryst. 18, 367-370.]), giving an ortho­rhom­bic unit cell with a = 8.373 Å, b = 11.935 Å and c = 12.618 Å (F20 = 86, M20 = 37, F40 = 88, M40 = 31). Systematic absences h00 (h = 2n), 0k0 (k = 2n) and 00l (l = 2n) are unique within the ortho­rhom­bic system to the space group P212121, which was used for structure solution by direct methods using the program EXPO (Altomare et al., 1999[Altomare, A., Burla, M. C., Camalli, M., Carrozzini, B., Cascarano, G. L., Giacovazzo, C., Guagliardi, A., Moliterni, A. G. G., Polidori, G. & Rizzi, R. (1999). J. Appl. Cryst. 32, 339-340.]). The Pt and Cl atoms, all non-H atoms of one ligand, and most of the non-H atoms of the second ligand were located in the structure solution and subsequent Fourier recycling. For the second ligand, one N atom of the tetra­zole ring and the C atom of the methyl group did not emerge, so they were located geometrically, with R(F) = 0.106 at this stage.

The structural model was refined with FULLPROF (Rodríguez-Carvajal, 2001[Rodríguez-Carvajal, J. (2001). FULLPROF. Version 1.9c. CEA/Saclay, France.]). Background was approximated by a polynomial function. The pseudo-Voigt profile function was used to fit the pattern. A line-shape asymmetry correction was applied according to the Bérar–Baldinozzi function (Bérar & Baldinozzi, 1993[Bérar, J.-F. & Baldinozzi, G. (1993). J. Appl. Cryst. 26, 128-129.]). No preferred orientation was found. The displacement parameters of all non-H atoms were refined isotropically and were constrained to be the same. H atoms were placed at calculated positions (Sheldrick, 2008[Sheldrick, G. M. (2008). Acta Cryst. A64, 112-122.]), with C—H = 0.96 Å for the methyl group and N—H = 0.86 Å for the amino group, and with Uiso(H) = 1.5Uiso(C,N). Planar geometry was assigned to the amino groups, because 5-amino substituents of the tetra­zole ring are typically planar and do not participate in coordination of metal cations (CSD; Allen, 2002[Allen, F. H. (2002). Acta Cryst. B58, 380-388.]). Only two compounds are exceptions, viz. the chloride and bromide complexes of copper(II) with 2-methyl-2H-tetra­zol-5-amine, which show semi-coordination of their 5-amino groups (Ivashkevich et al., 2010[Ivashkevich, L. S., Lyakhov, A. S., Mosalkova, A. P., Gaponik, P. N. & Ivashkevich, O. A. (2010). Acta Cryst. C66, m114-m117.]).

Soft restraints were used for the bond lengths and angles in the ligands. The target values were based on an analysis of bond lengths and angles in the complexes of 2-substituted tetra­zol-5-amines studied to date. These are the copper(II), palladium(II) and platinum(II) chloride complexes with 2-tert-butyl-2H-tetra­zol-5-amine (Voitekhovich et al., 2009[Voitekhovich, S. V., Serebryanskaya, T. V., Lyakhov, A. S., Gaponik, P. N. & Ivashkevich, O. A. (2009). Polyhedron, 28, 3614-3620.]), and the silver (Karaghiosoff et al., 2009[Karaghiosoff, K., Klapötke, T. M. & Sabate, C. M. (2009). Chem. Eur. J. 15, 1164-1176.]) and copper(II) (Ivashkevich et al., 2010[Ivashkevich, L. S., Lyakhov, A. S., Mosalkova, A. P., Gaponik, P. N. & Ivashkevich, O. A. (2010). Acta Cryst. C66, m114-m117.]) complexes of 2-methyl-2H-tetra­zol-5-amine. The bonds were restrained to 1.33 (N1—N2), 1.29 (N2—N3), 1.33 (N3—N4), 1.34 (N4—C5), 1.33 (N1—C5), 1.34 (C5—N5), 1.49 (N2—C2) and 2.00 Å (Pt1—N4), and the angles to 115.0 (N1—N2—N3), 105.0 (N2—N3—N4), 108.0 (N3—N4—C5), 110.0 (N4—C5—N1), 102.0 (C5—N1—N2), 124.0 (N4—C5—N5), 126.0 (N1—C5—N5), 122.5 (N1—N2—C2), 122.5 (N3—N2—C2), 123.0 (Pt—N4—N3) and 129.0° (Pt1—N4—C5). The same target values were applied independently for the two ligands. The values of σ, defining the weights of restraints, were set at 0.005 Å for bonds and at 0.05° for angles in the initial stages of the refinement, and at 0.01 Å and 0.1°, respectively, in the final refinement.

In view of the rather large number of atoms in the asymmetric unit, the restraints played a very important role in obtaining the structural parameters. As expected, full profile refinement failed without soft restraints. However, even with the restraints, the refinement was somewhat complicated. A stable decrease of discrepancy indices was achieved only when restrained parameters were gradually included in the refinement. In the first step, only the coordinates of Pt and Cl atoms were refined, and without any restraints. In subsequent steps, during refinement of the remaining atomic positions, the coordinates of the Pt and Cl atoms were kept fixed, otherwise the refinement was unstable. Refinement of C- and N-atom coordinates was performed first for one ligand. N4 was refined first, with soft restraints involving this atom only. Then C5 was included, with corresponding restraints. The remaining atoms of the first ligand were included in the order N3, N1, N2, N5 and C2. In the next step, atomic coordinates of the second ligand were added to the refinement in the same manner. Then the Pt and Cl atoms were refined together with all of the other atoms. After placement of H atoms in calculated positions, the final refinement was performed. This procedure reduced the discrepancy indices from Rp = 0.162, Rwp = 0.261, RBragg = 0.284 and RF = 0.131 to Rp = 0.036, Rwp = 0.046, RBragg = 0.045 and RF = 0.032, values indicative of an adequate result. The final Rietveld refinement plots are shown in Fig. 4[link].

Platinum complexes are the subject of a great deal of activity in connection with the search for new anticancer therapeutics showing better medical properties as compared to those of cisplatin, carboplatin and oxaliplatin, which are widely used in clinical practice. It is known that these drugs exhibit side effects, and moreover their use is limited by inherent and acquired resistance. In this context, the synthesis and comprehensive characterization of PtII complexes with planar heterocyclic amine ligands are the subject of intense study, because such ligands are expected to ameliorate the toxic side effects of platinum-based antitumour drugs (Hotze et al., 2002). To date, many PtII complexes with nitrogen-containing planar heterocycles, including pyridine and its derivatives, thiazole, imidazole, pyrazol and quinoline, have been studied (Kalinowska-Lis et al., 2008). As for tetrazole-containing analogues, their systematic study began only recently (Voitekhovich et al., 2009; Golovko et al., 2010).

Scant information is present in the literature on the crystal structures of PtX2L2 complexes with X a halogen and L a neutral substituted tetrazole. Crystal structures have been reported only for the trans-isomer of the platinum(II) chloride complex with 2-tert-buthyl-2H-tetrazol-5-amine (Voitekhovich et al., 2009). The cis-isomers of this class of complexes have not been structurally characterized yet, because many of them crystallize as fine powders, making structural investigations more difficult. We present here the structure of cis-dichloridobis(2-methyl-2H-tetrazol-5-amine)platinum(II), (I), a tetrazole-containing analogue of cisplatin. Powder diffraction data were used, because all attempts to grow suitable single crystals to date have failed because of cis–trans isomerization during recrystallization.

Compound (I) (Fig. 1) is mononuclear cis-PtCl2L2, with space group P212121, which is not common for this class of compounds (see below). One molecule, with 17 non-H atoms, constitutes the asymmetric unit. The Pt atom exhibits slightly distorted square-planar coordination formed by N4 and N44 of two tetrazole rings as well as Cl1 and Cl2 in a cis-arrangement [mean deviation of ligated atoms from the plane Pt1/Cl1/Cl2/N4/N44, 0.037 (7) Å]. The Pt1—N4, Pt1—N44, Pt1—Cl1 and Pt1—Cl2 distances (Table 1) lie within expected ranges [Cambridge Structural Database (CSD), Version 5.32, November 2010; Allen, 2002]. The large ligands do not induce significant distortion from square-planar coordination geometry [N4—Pt1—N44, 93.1 (5)°]. The geometry observed for both tetrazole ligands is similar to that of the free ligand (Bryden, 1956; Klapötke et al., 2009).

The amino (and methyl) groups of the 2-methyl-2H-tetrazol-5-amine ligands lie on opposite sides of the coordination plane, giving approximate C2 symmetry to the complex as a whole. The two tetrazole rings make dihedral angles of 79.7 (7)° (N1 – C5) and 73.8 (6)° (N11 – C55) with the coordination plane, with corresponding torsion angles Cl2—Pt1—N4—C5 and Cl1—Pt1—N44—C55 of 86.6 (14) and 82.3 (12)°, respectively.

The amino H atoms are involved in intermolecular N—H···Cl hydrogen bonds (Fig. 2, Table 2). Both H atoms of the N5 amino group are donors to Cl1 atoms of different molecules, forming ribbons propagating along the a axis (Fig. 3a). Only one of the H atoms of the amino group at N55 participates in hydrogen bonding, linking the complex molecules into chains extending along the c axis (Fig. 3b), and connecting the above-mentioned ribbons into a three-dimensional network (Fig. 2).

Complex (I) belongs to `structural class' P212121, Z = 4(1) (notation of Zorkii et al., 1977), which is rare among the cis-isomers of PtX2L2. According to the analysis of Hansson et al. (2008), based on the CSD, the distribution of structural classes of cis-PtX2L2 complexes (X a halogen, L a ligand with a donor atom from groups 14, 15, 16) is dominated by P21/c, Z = 4(1) (42% of compounds), followed by P1, Z = 2(1) (19%), and with a much lower representation for P212121, Z = 4(1) (5%).

Compound (I) is the first structurally characterized tetrazole-containing analogue of cisplatin. However, its cytotoxic activity, assayed in vitro against HeLa cells (Golovko et al., 2010), is significantly lower than that of cisplatin. To begin to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the antitumour activity of tetrazole-containing cisplatin analogues, and to develop a concept for rational design of antitumour drugs based on a `structure–cytotoxic activity' relationship, it will be necessary to accumulate more and diverse information for this class of complexes.

Experimental top

A solution of 2-methyl-2H-tetrazol-5-amine (1 mmol, 0.099 g) in 1 M HCl (5 ml) was added to a solution of K2PtCl4 (0.5 mmol, 0.207 g) in 1 M HCl (5 ml), and the reaction mixture was stirred for 24 h at room temperature. The resulting yellow precipitate was filtered off, washed with cold water and dried in air (yield 0.19 g, 82%). Analysis calculated: Pt 42.0, Cl 15.3%; found: Pt 42.2, Cl 15.1%.

Refinement top

The powder pattern was indexed with the program TREOR90 (Werner et al., 1985), giving an orthorhombic unit cell with a = 8.373, b = 11.935, c = 12.618 Å (F20 = 86, M20 = 37, F40 = 88, M40 = 31). Systematic absences h00 (h = 2n), 0k0 (k = 2n) and 00l (l = 2n) are unique within the orthorhombic system to space group P212121, which was used for structure solution by direct methods using the program EXPO (Altomare et al., 1999). The Pt and Cl atoms, all non-H atoms of one ligand, and most of the non-H atoms of the second ligand were located in the structure solution and subsequent Fourier recycling. For the second ligand, one N atom of the tetrazole ring and the C atom of the methyl group did not emerge, so they were located geometrically, with R(F) = 0.106 at this stage.

The structural model was refined with FULLPROF (Rodríguez-Carvajal, 2001). Background was approximated by a polynomial function. The pseudo-Voigt profile function was used to fit the pattern. A line-shape asymmetry correction was applied according to the Bérar–Baldinozzi function (Bérar & Baldinozzi, 1993). No preferred orientation was found. The displacement parameters of all non-H atoms were refined isotropically and were constrained to be the same. H atoms were placed at calculated positions (Sheldrick, 2008), with C—H = 0.96 Å for the methyl group, N—H = 0.86 Å for the amino group and Uiso(H) = 1.5Uiso(C, N). Planar geometry was assigned to the amino groups, because 5-amino substituents of the tetrazole ring are typically planar and do not participate in coordination of metal cations (CSD, Allen, 2002). Only two compounds are exceptions – the chloride and bromide complexes of copper(II) with 2-methyl-2H-tetrazol-5-amine, which show semi-coordination of their 5-amino groups (Ivashkevich et al., 2010).

Soft restraints were used for the bond lengths and angles in the ligands. The target values were based on an analysis of bond lengths and angles in the complexes of 2-substituted tetrazol-5-amines studied to date. These are the copper(II), palladium(II) and platinum(II) chloride complexes with 2-tert-butyl-2H-tetrazol-5-amine (Voitekhovich et al., 2009), and the silver (Karaghiosoff et al., 2009) and copper(II) (Ivashkevich et al., 2010) complexes of 2-methyl-2H-tetrazol-5-amine. The bonds were restrained to 1.33 (N1—N2), 1.29 (N2—N3), 1.33 (N3—N4), 1.34 (N4—C5), 1.33 (N1—C5), 1.34 (C5—N5), 1.49 (N2—C2), 2.00 Å (Pt1—N4), and the angles to 115.0 (N1—N2—N3), 105.0 (N2—N3—N4), 108.0 (N3—N4—C5), 110.0 (N4—C5—N1), 102.0 (C5—N1—N2), 124.0 (N4—C5—N5), 126.0 (N1—C5—N5), 122.5 (N1—N2—C2), 122.5 (N3—N2—C2), 123.0 (Pt—N4—N3), 129.0° (Pt1—N4—C5). The same target values were applied independently for the two ligands. The values of σ, defining the weights of restraints, were set to 0.005 Å for bonds and 0.05° for angles in initial stages of the refinement, and to 0.01 Å and 0.1°, respectively, in the final refinement.

In view of the rather large number of atoms in the asymmetric unit, the restraints played a very important role in obtaining the structural parameters. As expected, full profile refinement failed without soft restraints. However, even with the restraints, the refinement was somewhat complicated. A stable decrease of discrepancy indices was achieved only when restrained parameters were gradually included in the refinement. In the first step, only the coordinates of Pt and Cl were refined, and without any restraints. In subsequent steps, during refinement of the remaining atomic positions, the coordinates of the Pt and Cl atoms were kept fixed; otherwise the refinement was unstable. Refinement of C and N coordinates was performed first for one ligand. N4 was refined first, with soft restraints involving this atom only. Then C5 was included, with corresponding restraints. The remaining atoms of the first ligand were included in the order N3, N1, N2, N5, C2. In the next step, atomic coordinates of the second ligand were added to the refinement in the same manner. Then the Pt and Cl atoms were refined together with all of the other atoms. After placement of H atoms in calculated positions, the final refinement was performed. This procedure reduced the discrepancy indices from Rp= 0.162, Rwp = 0.261, RBragg = 0.284, RF = 0.131 to Rp = 0.036, Rwp = 0.046, RBragg = 0.045, RF = 0.032, values indicative of an adequate result.

The final Rietveld refinement plots are shown in Fig. 4.
