The self-assembly process is a natural phenomenon with the ability to organize biological systems. Its development by chemists as a synthetic process allowed the formation of esthetical structures as well as highly complex supramolecular systems with remarkable biological functions. Since 1990, metal directed self-assembly strategy has largely contributed to the design and synthesis of discrete...

The single-crystal X-ray structure analysis of [RuCl2(C12H18)(C5H7NO)] reveals a distorted piano-stool geometry around the RuII atom, with a hexamethylbenzene ligand, two chloride ligands and a furfurylamine ligand, the latter coordinating through the amine group. In the crystal, a dimeric structure is observed as a result of...
