Abstract

Treatment of the ruthenium(IV) complex [{Ru(eta(3):eta(3)-C10H16)Cl(mu-Cl)}(2)] (1) with two equivalents of silver(I) selenocyanate gives the new dimeric compound [{Ru(eta(3):eta(3)-C10H16)Cl(mu-SeCN)}(2)] (2). Although two diastereoisomers are observed in solution an X-ray structure determination reveals the C-2 isomer, which is isomorphous with the previously characterized thiocyanate analogue [{Ru(eta(3):eta(3)-C10H16)Cl(mu-SCN)}(2)] (3). Attempts to isolate the C-i isomer of 3 have resulted in the identification of a new polymorph of the C-2 isomer which differs from the previously reported structure in the nature of the intermolecular contacts.
