Abstract

Addition of halogen (Cl2, Br2 or I2) to ruthenium or osmium acetylide complexes has afforded cationic halovinylidene derivatives; in one case, halogenation of the phenyl group of a phenylacetylide ligand also occurred. The structure of [Ru(CCIPh)(PPh3)2(η-C5H5)][I3] has been determined; crystals are monoclinic, space group P21/c, with a 18.693(5), b 15.460(5), c 15.679(5) Å, β 101.49(2)° and Z 4; 5180 data with I > 2σ(I) were refined to R 0.045, Rw 0.051. Significant distances are RuC 1.839(7), CC 1.31(1) Å; angle RuCC is 171.0(7)°.
