Abstract

The dinuclear ruthenium (I) complexes [Ru2(HCO2)2(CO)4(PPh 3)2] react with primary alcohols R′CH2OH in refluxing toluene, giving rise to [Ru2(R′CO2)2(CO)4(PPh 3)2] compounds. Other carboxylate bridging complexes react with alcohols R″OH to give very unstable alkoxide compounds [Ru2(R″O)2(CO)4(PPh3) 2]. © 1999 Elsevier Science S.A.
