Heterometallic complexes [RuNO(NO2)4OHCuPy2(H2O)] (I) and [RuNO(NO2)4OHCuPy3] (II) are described structurally for the first time. In complex I, the ruthenium anion is coordinated to the copper atom by the bridging OH group and two bridging nitro groups; in complex II, by the bridging OH group and one bridging nitro group. Dimers are formed in the crystal lattice of complex II due to the interaction of the copper atom and the nitro group of the ruthenium anion in trans position to the bridging NO2 group.
