A new set of Ru−Cl complexes containing either the pinene[5,6]bpea ligand (L1) or the C₃ symmetric pinene[4,5]tpmOMe (L2) tridentate ligand in combination with the bidentate (B) 2,2′-bipyridine (bpy) or 1,2-diphenylphosphinoethane (dppe) with general formula [RuCl(L1 or L2)(B)]⁺ have been prepared and thoroughly characterized. In the solid state, X-ray diffraction...
