    Summary
    The mononuclear η5-cyclopentadienyl complexes [(η5-C5H5)Ru(PPh3)2Cl], [(η5-C5H5)Os(PPh3)2Br] and pentamethylcyclopentadienyl complex [(η5-C5Me5)Ru(PPh3)2Cl] react in the presence of 1 eq. of the tetradentate N,N′-chelating ligand 3,5-bis(2-pyridyl)pyrazole (bpp-H) and 1 eq. of NH4PF6 in methanol to afford the mononuclear complexes [(η5-C5H5)Ru(PPh3)(bpp-H)]PF6 ([1]PF6), [(η5-C5H5)Os(PPh3)(bpp-H)]PF6 ([2]PF6) and [(η5-C5Me5)Ru(PPh3)(bpp-H)]PF6 ([3]PF6), respectively. The dinuclear η5-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl complexes [(η5-C5Me5)Rh(μ-Cl)Cl]2 and [(η5-C5Me5)Ir(μ-Cl)Cl]2 as well as the dinuclear η6-arene ruthenium complexes [(η6-C6H6)Ru(μ-Cl)Cl]2 and [(η6-p-iPrC6H4Me)Ru(μ-Cl)Cl]2 react with 2 eq. of bpp-H in the presence of NH4PF6 or NH4BF4 to afford the corresponding mononuclear complexes [(η5-C5Me5)Rh(bpp-H)Cl]PF6 ([4]PF6), [(η5-C5Me5)Ir(bpp-H)Cl]PF6 ([5]PF6), [(η6-C6H6)Ru(bpp-H)Cl]BF4 ([6]BF4) and [(η6-p-iPrC6H4Me)Ru(bpp-H)Cl]BF4 ([7]BF4). However, in the presence of 1 eq. of bpp-H and NH4BF4 the reaction with the same η6-arene ruthenium complexes affords the dinuclear salts [(η6-C6H6)2Ru2 (bpp)Cl2]BF4 ([8]BF4) and [(η6-p-iPrC6H4Me)2Ru2 (bpp)Cl2]BF4 ([9]BF4), respectively. These compounds have been characterized by IR, NMR and mass spectrometry, as well as by elemental analysis. The molecular structures of [1]PF6, [5]PF6 and [8]BF4 have been established by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies and some representative complexes have been studied by UV–vis spectroscopy.
