Hydrogen-bonded systems between monocarboxylic acids and the trinuclear cluster cation [H3Ru3(C6H6)(C6Me6)2(O)]+ : cold-spray ionisation mass spectroscopic and X-ray crystallographic studies

Therrien, Bruno ; Vieille-Petit, Ludovic ; Süss-Fink, Georg ; Sei, Yoshihisa ; Yamaguchi, Kentaro

In: Journal of Organometallic Chemistry, 2004, vol. 689, p. 2820-2826

The hydrogen-bonded systems formed between monocarboxylic acid derivatives and the trinuclear arene-ruthenium cluster cation [H3Ru3(C6H6)(C6Me6)2(O)]+ (1) have been studied in solution by cold-spray ionisation mass spectroscopy (CSI-MS) and in the solid state by single-crystal X-ray structure analysis...
