Abstract

The crystal structure of the title complex has been determined by the heavy-atom method from X-ray diffractometer data and refined to R 0.052 for 2 997 independent reflections. Crystals are triclinic, space group P1, a = 16.08(1), b = 11.907(5), c = 9.693(3) Å, α = 103.04(3), β = 77.80(4), γ = 94.15(4)°, Z = 2. The complex, reported previously as [Ru(dtc)2CO] (dtc- = CS2-·NEt2), is dimeric, the sixth co-ordination position in the pseudo-octahedral co-ordination sphere about each ruthenium being trans to the carbonyl (mean Ru-C 1.78 Å) and filled by a bridging sulphur atom from one of the ligands about the other ruthenium (mean Ru-S 2.55 Å); the remaining Ru-S distances are slightly longer than those usually found (mean 2.399 Å). The Ru ⋯ Ru distance [3.654(2) Å] indicates there is no metal-metal interaction. The molecule approximates to C2 point-symmetry.
