Abstract

The reaction between RuCl(PPh3)2Cp* and {Cu(CCPh)}n in refluxing benzene afforded Ru2Cu2(C2Ph)5H2(Cl)(PPh3)Cp*2, which contains an unusual tetramer of the phenylethynyl group which interacts with an Ru…Cu…Cu…Ru chain. The second Ru atom is part of a ruthenocenyl moiety which interacts weakly with the second Cu atom, and bears a vinylidene which bridges an Ru–Cu vector. The structure of a second modification of Ru(CCPh)(CO)(PPh3)Cp* is also reported.
