6-benzene)(benzyldiphenylphosphane)- dichloridoruthenium(II)

Alfred Muller, Wade L. Davis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the title compound, [RuCl2(C6H6)(C19H1 7P)], the RuII atom has a distorted pseudo-octahedral coordination environment with the metrical parameters around the metallic core as Ru-centroid(η6-benzene) = 1.6894 (11) Å, Ru-P = 2.3466 (6), Ru-Cl(avg.) = 2.4127 (7) Å; Cl-Ru-Cl = 88.07 (2) and Cl-Ru-P = 82.77 (2), 87.65 (2)°. The effective cone angle for the benzyldiphenylphosphane was calculated to be 143°. In the crystal C-H··· Cl and C-H···π interactions are observed.
