This review describes the recent advances in ruthenium–nitrosoarene chemistry. The preparations of Ru–nitrosoarene complexes by (1) intermolecular nitrosonium insertion into Ru–aryl bonds, and (2) Ru-induced symmetric or asymmetric cleavage of benzofuroxan, are discussed. The exploration of the redox non-innocence of the coordinated nitrosoarene, dinitrosoarene and structurally related ligands via structural, spectroscopic, electrochemical and computational studies are presented.
