The 16-electron complexes Ru(CO)Cl(RCCHR′)(PPh3)2 (R = H, R′ = CMe3, SiMe3, Ph, CO2Me and CO2Et; R = R′ = H, Me, Ph and CO2Me react readily with carboxylates to give the saturated complexes Ru(O2CR″)(CO)(RCCHR′)(PPh3)2 (R″ = Me and Et). The crystal structure of the complex Ru(O2CMe)(CO)(HCCHPh)(PPh3)2 has been determined, and reveals an octahedral geometry for the ruthenium atom bearing two phosphines in a trans-disposition and η2-acetate, CO and η1-phenylethenyl ligands. © 1990.
