Abstract

Voltammetric studies reveal that, like [Ru2Cl4(PPh3)4(CO)], triply-bridged complexes [Ru2Cl4L5] (L = PClPh2, PMePh2, PEt2Ph) are reversibly oxidized to [Ru2Cl4L5]+. The mixed valence complexes [Ru2Cl5L3Y] (L = PPh3, P(tol)3; Y = CO, CS) undergo a corresponding reduction to [Ru2Cl5L3Y]−; whereas [Ru2Cl5L4] (L = PEt2Ph, As(tol)3) and [Ru2Cl6(AsPh3)3] are both reduced oxidised in reversible one-electron steps. For the bridging (RuCl3Ru)z+ moiety, the redox series z = 1, 2, 3, 4 is established.
