Abstract: In the title compound, [Ru(C13H7Cl2N5)(C15H11N3)](PF6)2·2CH3CN, the RuII atom is coordinated in a distorted octahedral geometry by a tridentate 2,2':6',2''-terpyridine ligand and a tridentate 2,6-bis(5-chloropyrimidin-2-yl)pyridine ligand. Least-squares mean-plane distortions of only 1.72 (2) and 2.91 (2)° of the pyrimidyl rings with respect to the central pyridine are observed for the bis(pyrimidyl)pyridine-based tridentate ligand, while the distal pyridyl rings of terpyridine twist by 13.43 (7) and 4.68 (9)° away from the central pyridine ring.
