Reaction of [Ru(Me 3 tacn)(PMe 3 ) 2 (O 2 CCF 3 )]PF 6 with one equivalent of t -BuNC or 4-cyano-1-isocyano-2,6-diisopropylbenzene (L′) in refluxing 1,2-dichloroethane gave [Ru(Me 3 tacn)(PMe 3 )( t -BuNC)(O 2 CCF 3 )]PF 6 ( 1 )·PF 6 and [Ru(Me 3 tacn)(PMe 3 )(L′)(O 2 CCF 3 )]PF 6 ( 3 )·PF 6 , respectively. In the presence of zinc amalgam, reactions of [Ru(Me 3 tacn)(H 2 O) 2 (O 2 CCF 3 )](OTf) 2 , trans- [Ru(16-TMC)Cl 2 ]Cl and cis -[Ru(2,2,2-tet-Me 6 )Cl 2 ]PF 6 with an excess of t -BuNC in 1… CONTINUE READING
