Abstract

{Routes to the Ru(PP)(RCN)(4)(2+)2PF(6)(-) complexes (PP = Ph(2)P(CH2)(4)PPh(2), dppb; R = Me, Ph) from the Ru(II) precursors Ru2Cl4(PP)(2) and RuCl2(PP)(PPh(3)) have been established. The X-ray crystal structure of the dppb-MeCN derivative (3) is described, and the steric effect of the diphosphine ligand is examined by comparison with the crystal structure of trans-RuCl2(MeCN)(4) (5), which is also presented. Crystals of 3 are triclinic
