Abstract

The interaction of Ru(OAc)2(Ph3P)2 with 1 equivalent of N,N′-bis[o-(diphenylphosphino)benzylidene]ethylenediamine (P2N2) in refluxing dichloromethane gives trans-Ru(OAc)2(P2N2) (I) in moderate yield (63%); in refluxing toluene the reaction gives a red product, which upon recrystallization in CHCl3/hexane gives trans-Ru(OAc)2Cl2·2H2O (III) in good yield (92%). Compounds I and III have been fully characterized by analytical and spectroscopic methods. The structure of III has been determined by an X-ray diffraction study.
