Abstract: The ruthenium(II) complex [Ru(CH=CHC6H4Me-4)(κ2-S2C · NHC)(CO)(PPh3)2]+ is formed on reaction of NHC · CS2 (NHC = ICy, IMes) with [Ru(CH=CHC6H4Me-4)Cl(CO)(BTD)(PPh3)2] in the presence of NH4PF6, whereas the analogous reaction with the more bulky IDip · CS2 leads to the remarkable product, [Ru{κ2-SC(H)S(CH=CHC6H4Me-4) · IDip}Cl(CO)(PPh3)2]+.

Keywords: Alkene Ligands, Carbene Ligands, Dithiocarboxylates, Ruthenium
