The reaction between Ru5(μ5-C2PPh2)(μ-PPh2)(CO)13 and Au(C2Ph)(PPh3) afforded AuRu5(μ5-C2PPh2)(μ-C2Ph)(μ-PPh2)(CO)13 (PPh3), in which the Ru5 cluster has a scorpion geometry; the Au(PPh3) group bridges one of the Ru-Ru bonds of the Ru3 triangle, while the C2Ph group bridges one of the tail Ru-Ru vectors.
