Cationic tetranuclear arene ruthenium complexes of the general formula [Ru4(p-cymene)4(N N)2(dhnq)2] comprising rectangular structures are obtained in methanol from the reaction of the dinuclear arene ruthenium precursor [Ru2(p-cymene)2(dhnq)2Cl2] (dhnq = 5,8-dihydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinonato) with pyrazine or bipyridine linkers [N N = pyrazine, 1; 4,4 -bipyridine, 2; 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene, 3] in the presence of AgCF3SO3. All complexes 1–3, isolated in good yield as triflate salts, have been… CONTINUE READING
