The great interest being taken in the organometallic compounds of the platinum metals is evident in the current literature, in the first International Conference on the Chemistry of the Platinum Group Metals held in Bristol in 1981, and now by the second conference to take place in Edinburgh in July. This article reviews the preparation of the first such compounds over a hundred and fifty years ago and the acrimonious debate that ensued over their true constitution, continuing with a brief account of the early development of a further range of platinum complexes that have come to play an important part in industrial chemistry.
