by Jiang, Yanjing; Draganjac, Mark; Cordes, A. Wallace
The title compound [CpRu(PPh(3))(2)(tht)]BF4, 1, tht=tetrahydrothiophene, is obtained by the reaction of CpRu(PPh(3))(2)Cl, tht and AgBF4 in CH2Cl2 solution. Yellow crystals of [CpRu(PPh(3))(2)(tht)]BF4 were grown by the slow diffusion of pentane into a CH2Cl2 solution of 1 and have been studied by X-ray crystallography: space group is P2(1)/n, a=9.507(2), b=18.336(3), c=22.372(6) Angstrom, beta=94.28(2)degrees, V=3889(1) Angstrom(3), Z=4. The tht ligand binds to the Ru atom through the sulfur atom at a distance of 2.395(2) Angstrom. The tht ring is in the puckered configuration.
