Crystal structure of (μ-4-hydroxybenzenethiolato-κ2S:S)bis(μ-phenylmethanethiolato-κ2S:S)bis[(η6-1-isopropyl-4-methylbenzene)ruthenium(II)] tetrafluoridoborate
The crystal structure of the dinuclear arene ruthenium title complex, [Ru2(C6H5OS)(C7H7S)2(C10H14)2]BF4, shows the two RuII atoms to be bridged by two benzylthiophenolate units and one 4-hydroxythiophenolate unit, with the remaining three coordination sites of each RuII atom being occupied by p-cymene ligands, completing the typical piano-stool coordination geometry. The BF4− counter-anion is surrounded by four cationic dinuclear complexes, showing an O—H...F hydrogen bond and several weak C—H...F interactions. This is the first example of an X-ray analysis of a mixed dinuclear trithiolate arene ruthenium(II) complex.
