Hexakis(acetonitrile-κN)ruthenium(II) bis-(hexa-bromo-carbadodeca- borate) aceto-nitrile solvate
The title compound, [Ru(NCCH ) ](CH B Br )2·CH CN, consists of the naked ruthenium(II) cation surrounded by six acetonitrile mol-ecules, each coordinated via the nitro-gen atoms in a linear or nearly-linear fashion in a typical octa-hedral over-all arrangement. The cation is balanced by the two hexa-bromo-carborane cage anionic fragments [CB H Br ]. Weak C - H⋯Br and B - H⋯Br inter-actions link neighboring anions. 3 6 6 11 6 3 11 6 6
