A terminal borylene ruthenium complex: from B-H activation to reversible hydrogen release.


Starting from RuHCl(H2)(PCy3)2, a terminal ruthenium mesitylborylene complex was obtained via double B-H bond activation of mesitylborane and concomitant release of dihydrogen, such a process being remarkably reversible.
