2007_03/2007Formation of a Ruthenium μ-Carbide Complex with Acetylene as the Carbon Source (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 3/2007)

The cover picture shows the structure of a novel ruthenium complex with a μ-carbide ligand. This complex was obtained in an unexpected reaction from [(p-cymene)Ru(μ-Cl)3RuCl(C2H4)(PCy3)] and acetylene. The solid-state 13C NMR spectrum of a μ-carbide complex obtained from fully 13C-labeled acetylene shows a strong peak at δ = 430.5 ppm. This confirms that acetylene was the source of the μ-carbide ligand and that the complex was formed by cleavage of the carbon triple bond. More details about this unusual reaction are described in the Short Communication by K. Severin et al. on p. 367 ff.
