Di μ- Nitrosyl-bis-[(ν5-pentamethyl-cyclopentadienyl) ruthenium(0)](Ru - Ru)
The title structure, [Ru2(C10H15)2(NO)2], consists of the two Ru atoms doubly bridged via the N atoms of the two NO groups, with two penta-methyl-cyclo-penta-dienyl (Cp) rings protruding away from the bridged system on opposite sides. The asymmetric unit contains two independent dimer mol-ecules with an average Ru - Ru distance of 2.538 (7) Å and an average Ru - N - Ru angle of 97.2 (3)°. The compound was obtained as the product of a facile reaction between CpRu(NO)(OSO2CF3)2 and excess neat 2-propanol. The crystals were grown from CH2Cl2 solution at ambient temperature under a nitro-gen atmosphere. © International Union of Crystallography 2007.
