Abstract

{The complex trans-RuCl2(dppm)(2) (trans-1) (dppm = Ph2PCH2PPh2) has been converted to the corresponding cis isomer (cis-1) at room temperature in the presence of catalytic CuCl or CuI. The halide-bridged heterotrimetallic {[}\{cis-RuCl2(dppm)(2)\}(2)Cu]{[}CuCl2] (2) was isolated when trans-1 or cis-1 was reacted with excess CuCl. Complex 2 was crystallized and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Cell parameters for 2 . solvent: a = 11.6059(4) Angstrom
