Auration of ruthenocene: synthesis and molecular structure of mono- and diaurated derivatives

  • 31 Accesses

  • 2 Citations


Ruthenocene, like ferrocene, reacts with (Ph3PAu)3O+BF4 to afford agem-diaurated derivative CpRuC5H4(AuPPh3)2 +BF4 , which is converted into CpRuC5H4AuPPh3 when treated with PPh3. X-ray structural analysis revealed substantial Ru-Au interaction in the diaurated derivative.
