    Summary
    The RuII atom in the title compound, [RuCl2(C12H18)(C9H12ClN3O)]•CHCl3, exhibits a typical piano-stool coordination, defined by a hexamethylbenzene ligand, two chloride ligands and a pyridylurea ligand coordinated through the pyridine N atom. In the crystal, a dimeric structure is observed due to two strong N-H...Cl interactions between the NH groups of urea and the two chloride ligands of neighbouring molecules. In addition, the C=O group of the urea moiety interacts with the solvent molecule through weak C-H...O interactions.
