Reactions between [Ru(C=C=CPh2)(PPh3)(2)Cp][PF6] and nucleophilic reagents LiMe, NaOMe, KCN and KC5H5 have given the neutral substituted alkynyl-ruthenium complexes Ru{C=CCPh2(Nu)} (PPh3)(2)Cp. The molecular structures of complexes with Nu = OMe. CN and C5H5 have been determined. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science S.A. All rights reserved.
