Cyclopentadienyl(thioacetamide-S)-Bis(triphenylphosphine-P)ruthenium(ii) Tetrafluoroborate

by Bryan, Clinton Dave; Cordes, A. Wallace; Draganjac, Mark

The title compound [Ru(C5H5)(C2H5NS)(C18H15P)(2)]-BF4 crystallizes in the space group P2(1)/c. The Ru atom has pseudotetrahedral coordination geometry formed by the cyclopentadienyl centroid, the two PPh(3) ligands and the 5 atom of the neutral thioacetamide molecule. The Ru-S and C=S distances are 2.3820 (13) and 1.671 (5) Angstrom, respectively, and the Ru-S=C angle is 116.3 (2)degrees. The Ru atom is at a distance of 0.405 (9) Angstrom from the plane formed by the atoms of the thioacetamide group.
