Structure and catalytic activity of the ruthenium(I) sawhorse-type complex [Ru2{[mu],[eta]2-CF3(CF2)5COO}2(DMSO)2(CO)4]

T. K. Zimmermann, S. Haslinger, A. Pöthig and F. E. Kühn

Synopsis: A sawhorse-type dinuclear ruthenium complex with two bridging perfluoro­heptan­oate ligands and two dimethyl sulfoxide ligands in the axial positions is a new example of a compound with an aliphatic fluorinated carboxyl­ate ligand and a direct Ru-Ru inter­action. The compound is an active catalyst in transvinyl­ation of propionic acid with vinyl acetate.

Formula: [Ru2(C7F13O2)2(C2H6OS)2(CO)4]
