Synthesis and characterization of fullerene-pyridyl arene ruthenium complexes

Appavoo, Divambal ; Deschenaux, Robert ; Therrien, Bruno

In: Studia Universitatis Babes-Bolyai. Chemia, 2015, vol. 60, no. 4, p. 229-238

Association of [60]fullerene with arene ruthenium moieties has been achieved for the first time. Two fullerenopyrrolidine derivatives (Npyr-C60) were synthesized via a 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition, and coordinated to arene ruthenium complexes to form two half-sandwich complexes of the general formula...

X-ray crystallographic study of two dinuclear triply-bridged p-cymene osmium complexes

Therrien, Bruno ; Vieille-Petit, Ludovic ; Süss-Fink, Georg

In: Journal of Molecular Structure, 2005, vol. 738, no. 1, p. 161-163

The single crystal X-ray structure analyses of [Os2(p-cymene)2(μ-H)3]PF6 ([1]PF6) and [Os2 (p-cymene)2 (μ-Cl)3]PF6 ([2]PF6) are presented. The two triple bridged arene osmium complexes show the metal to be in an octahedral geometry, where the p-cymene ligand is facially coordinated and where the bridging ligands (Cl or...

Synthesis and molecular structure of trinuclear mixed-metal cluster cations containing arene and hydrido ligands

Romakh, Vladimir ; Therrien, Bruno ; Süss-Fink, Georg

In: Inorganica Chimica Acta, 2006, vol. 359, no. 3, p. 907-911

The mixed-metal trinuclear cluster cations [H3Ru2(C6Me6)2Os(C6H6)(O)]+ (1), [H3Ru2 (1,2,4,5-C6H2Me4)2Os(p-MeC6H4iPr)(O)]+ (2) and [H3Ru2...
