Abstract

The preparation, characterisation and single-crystal XRD molecular structure determinations of the three Ru3 carbonyl clusters attached to carbon ligands, Ru3(μ-H)33-CBr)(CO)9 (1), Ru3(μ-H)(μ-dppm){μ-C(OMe)}(CO)8 (2) and AuRu3(μ-H)23-C=C=CHPh)(CO)10 (3) are reported, together with the structures of the tetranuclear hydrido-carbonyls Ru4(μ-H)4–2x(CO)11+x(PPh3) (x = 0 4, 1 5).
