The reactivity of the ruthenium carbonyl derivatives of lutecium (THF)Cp'2LuRu(CO)2Cp [Cp'=Cp (1) and 1, 3-(Me3Si)2C5H3 (2)] has been studied. It has been shown that the reactions of complex 1 withi.-Pr2CO and of2 with HCl, H2O, and HgCl2 are accompanied by cleavage of the Lu-Ru bond. The reaction of2 with H2O gives [1, 3-(Me3Si)2C5H3]2Lu (μ-OH)2 (3), which has been characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis (MoKα radiation,R=0.0280, 2750 reflections). The crystals are monoclinic,a = 15.638(6) Å,b=15.787(2) Å,c = 12.188(1) Å, β=99.06°,Z= 2, space group P21/n. Centrosymmetric dimer3 has two μ-OH ligands, and the Lu-O and Lu...Lu interatomic distances are 2.264(4) Å (mean) and 3.579(1) Å, respectively. The structure behavior of3 in a THF solution has been discussed.
