Abstract

Herein are described some continuing investigations into the reactions of cyano-alkenes with diynyl-ruthenium complexes which have resulted in the preparation and characterisation of diynyl-ruthenium compounds Ru(C CC CR)(PP)Cp [R = Ph, PP = dppe; R = Fc, PP = dppf; R = CPh=CBr2, PP = (PPh3)(2)], together with the polycyanobutadienyls Ru{C CC[=C(CN)(2)]CR=CR'(CN)}(PP)Cp' [R = Fc, (PP)Cp' = (dppf)Cp; R = H, SiMe3, (PP)Cp' = (dppe)Cp*] formed by [2 + 2]-cycloaddition of the cyano-alkenes to the outer C C triple bonds and subsequent ring-opening reactions. Single-crystal XRD molecular structure determinations of six complexes are reported.
