A new metal-metal bonded diruthenium(II, III) compound with a dianionic tridentate ligand, N-(2-pyridyl)-2-oxy-5-chloro-benzylaminate (5-Clsalpy2-), was synthesized and structurally characterized as Li2(THF)4Cl[Ru2(5-Clsalpy)3] (1). The 5-Clsalpy2- ligand that acts as a bridging/chelating co-ligand afforded a unique coordination mode of [M-M bridging/equatorial-chelating] in addition to the "common" mode of [M-M bridging/axial-chelating] around the diruthenium unit of 1.
