Abstract

The triruthenium imido cluster Ru3(CO)103-NPh) reacts with tungsten hydrides LW(CO)3H to give heterometallic imido clusters LWRu2(CO)8(μ-H)(μ3- NPh) (2, L = Cp; 3, L = Cp) via the process of metal-metal exchange. Treatment of the imido clusters 2 and 3 with tungsten acetylide CpW(CO)3CCPh produces a novel tetranuclear imidoalkyne complex LCpW2Ru2(CO)6(μ-NPh)(μ-η2-CHCPh) (4, L = Cp; 5, L = Cp). The structures of 2 and 5 have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Crystal data for 2: space group Cc, a 18.177(5), b 8.672(2), c 16.181(5) Å, β = 123.25(2)°, Z = 4; RF = 0.0492, RW = 0.0513. Crystal data for 5: space group P1 , a 10.130(2), b 11.438(1), c 15.423(2) Å, α = 95.99(1), β = 92.27(1), γ = 106.05(1)°, Z = 2; RF = 0.026, RW = 0.026.
