Abstract

A phosphinidene-capped triruthenium cluster Ru3(CO)9(μ-H)23-PMes) (1, Mes = mesityl = 2,4,6-trimethylphenyl) reacted with diphosphines to afford linked clusters [Ru3(CO)8(μ-H)23-PMes)]2(μ-dppe) (2a, dppe = 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane), [Ru3(CO)8(μ-H)23-PMes)]2(μ-dppa) (2b, dppa = bis(diphenylphosphino)acetylene), and [Ru3(CO)8(μ-H)23-PMes)]2(μ-dppf) (2c, dppf = 1,1′-bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene) in high yields. The molecular structures of 2a and 2c were confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.
