The (hydrido)(carbido)decaruthenium cluster anion [Ru-10(mu-H)(mu(6)-C)(CO)(24)](-) reacts With triphenylphosphine in a stepwise manner to afford [Ru-10(mu-H)(mu(6)-C)-(CO)(24-x)(PPh(3))(x)](-) (x = 1-4), With initial ligand displacement on the apical ruthenium associated with the hydride ligand and subsequent ligand substitution at the other apices; the location of the phosphine substituent of the monosubstituted cluster anion [RU(10)(mu-H)(mu(6)-C)-(CO)(23)(PPh(3))](-) has been confirmed by a single crystal X-ray diffraction study.
