For example, planar platinum compounds have a weak affinity for groups in the fifth The Interactions of Platinum Compounds with Biological Moleeules 43 axial position. Tbe tendency of planar platinum compounds to crystallise in columnar stacks arises from this tendency. However this type of binding is open to both cis and trans isomers alike. On the other hand the cis isomer has a considerably higher dipole moment than the trans. Tbis may favour intercalation of cis compounds with DNA. At least one laboratory has looked for evidence of intercalation but none has so far been found.
